  1. Preview: 'James Bond: The Secret World Of 007'

    Earlier this year, CommanderBond.net reported that James Bond: The Secret World of 007 by DK Publishing and Alastair Dougall was set to be updated and reprinted once again to tie in with the release of Quantum of Solace.

    The book was last reprinted in 2006 for the release of Casino Royale, although some Bond fans were left disappointed with the lack of coverage in the book for that particular film.

    Now, Bond fans can get their first look at the cover art of the forthcoming edition, plus a sneek peak inside.

    DorlingKindersley-uk.co.uk have posted two new spreads that will feature in this edition: one dedicated to Quantum of Solace and another for the Venice section from Casino Royale.

    Click here to preview the book as well as get your first look at the cover artwork, featuring Daniel Craig as 007.

    Become an expert on the extraordinary career of 007 and get the inside scoop on his missions, from defeating the power-mad schemes of Dr No to the mysteries of Casino Royale and go behind the scenes of his latest movie, Quantum of Solace through unseen photography.

    Starting with a foreword penned by M herself, uncover the world of Bond, the world’s most famous secret agent. Spectacular photographs reveal the secrets of many of Bond’s amazing gadgets, racy vehicles and racier eye-candy. Explore the lairs of the supervillains he has defeated and follow bullet-by-blow accounts of some of his most death-defying chases and battles.

    Investigate 007’s distinctive style, his complicated love life and relationships with other members of M16 from M to Q and Miss Moneypenny. It’s a thrill-a-page 007 adventure.

    James Bond: The Secret World of 007 is scheduled for release on 1 October 2008 in the UK and 20 October in the US.
