The James Bond Archives

The ultimate companion for all things 007, with information on the making of every film in the James Bond franchise, from Dr. No to the 25th film, No Time To Die.



"Bond, James Bond." Since Sean Connery uttered these immortal words in 1962, the most dashing secret agent in film history has captivated and enthralled audiences around the world. This impeccably British character by author Ian Fleming has played in 25 films produced by EON, by six different actors over five decades.

EON Productions opened up its archives of photographs, designs, storyboards and production materials to editor Paul Duncan, who spent two years researching more than a million images and 100 file cabinets of documentation. The result is the most complete record of the making of the series, covering every James Bond film ever made, beginning with Dr. No (1962) and ending with No Time To Die (2021), including the spoof Casino Royale (1967) and Never Say Never Again (1983).

The wealth of previously unpublished photographs, set designs, storyboards and production memos is complemented by an oral history told by more than 150 cast and crew members. From producers to stuntmen, directors to production designers, these personal stories tell the true story from the inside out from the Bond sets and offer excellent insight into the personalities and processes behind the most successful and longest-running film franchise in film history. This book is a comprehensive tribute to the legend of James Bond.

The updated edition features exclusive photography and new interviews with Daniel Craig, director Cary Fukunaga, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and many others, revealing the full story behind the making of the emotionally charged No Time To Die.
