Some Kind of Hero: The Remarkable Story of the James Bond Films by Matthew Field and Ajay Chowdhury, with a foreword by George Lazenby - Matthew and Ajay are consummate James Bond experts, and ‘Some Kind of Hero’ is the new definitive work on the history of the James Bond films. As one reviewer noted: Putting the entire history of one of cinema's longest-running series into a single volume can be a daunting task, but Ajay and Matthew have risen to the challenge and turned out a book that comprehensively details not only the usual behind-the-scenes anecdotes, but also the complications of the Broccoli and Saltzman families, in dealing with both changing studio regimes, and the ever-changing political and cultural climates.”  At over 600 pages, this comprehensive book is not exactly a quick read, but meant to be savored like a well-made martini.

With its strong storylines and amazing artwork, these graphic novels are sure to please fans of classic Bond as well as modern. The series is still going strong with storylines like Eidolon, Black Box, and Hammerhead, and even spinoff series including Felix Leiter, Moneypenny, amd M.

On the Set of James Bond’s Spectre by Anderson and Lowe -  With a foreword by Spectre director Sam Mendes, this book represents a unique study in movie-making and constructed narrative in photography. Behind the scenes of the James Bond film Spectre: Just a few of the sets that appear in these super-sharp photographs include Q's workshop, an exploded building in Mexico City and a helicopter crash on Westminster Bridge. British photographers Jonathan Anderson and Edwin Low have created a highly original art project based on the spectacular sets from the latest James Bond movie, Spectre. Shooting entirely at Pinewood Studios in UK, the artist duo highlights a head-on collision of fantasy and reality by photographing the sets’ massive scale and extraordinary detail. The images of bare soundstages would normally shatter the cinematic illusion, but in this case, however, it has the reverse effect and enhances the sense of artifice and wonder.

Readers can explore James Bond creator Ian Fleming’s writing on the pleasures of drinking and mix themselves fifty delicious cocktails from recipes inspired by his books and developed by award-winning London bar, Swift. The recipes in Shaken are divided into five categories: Straight Up; On the Rocks; Tall; Fizzy; and Exotic. Each recipe is illustrated by a stunning full-color photo of the drink and wonderful extracts from Fleming’s writing – taken from the passage where the drink was featured or a place, character, or plot that inspired it.
