Book Review: BOND PHOTOGRAPHED BY TERRY O’NEILL – THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION Is Glorious

5 out of 5 stars

The look of James Bond is one of the most enduring facets of the franchise’s long history. From Aston Martin’s to Omega watches (and everything in-between), the style of Bond and the fashion which runs through the films has always given them an aspirational quality.

The look of the franchise is now on on full display in the glorious new book, Bond: Photographed By Terry O’Neill – The Definitive Collection from ACC Art Books. The tome is an absolute must for James Bond fans. It’s loaded with 46 colour and 107 black and white photographs from photographer Terry O’Neill. The book includes stunning on-set images from the series along with photographic portraits of all the franchise stars from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig

Alongside the breathtaking photography, the book also includes insight from from O’Neill himself, a series of James Bond essays from writer James Clarke and newly-conducted interviews with some of actors featured in O’Neill’s photographs.

Bond: Photographed By Terry O’Neill – The Definitive Collection will leave you shaken and stirred.
