The hype over Skyfall has settled down a bit as cinematic speculators already turn their attention to what’s next for 007.
We’ll let them get on with it as we continue our look at TASCHEN’s topping The James Bond Archives, a $200, 600-page extravaganza complete with an actual strip of film from Dr. No, available with the first print run only.
As we noted, a special limited Golden Edition in leather signed by Daniel Craig has already sold out at $1,000 a pop.
EON Productions opened their archives of photos, designs, storyboards and production materials to editor Paul Duncan, who spent two years researching over a million images and 100 filing cabinets of documentation to produce the volume.
Here we see Roger Moore on the set of 1973′s Live and Let Die, his first foray as Bond.
Eschewing the Service-issued Walther PPK, he brandishes a Smith & Wesson Magnum while rescuing Solitaire (Jane Seymour) of corrupt Caribbean dictator Dr. Kanaga, alias Mr. Big.
Obviously, a big gun was called for…
