Back in June of this year, CBn reported that a new 007 book would be hitting the shelves in September: The James Bond Encyclopedia by John Cork and Collin Stutz.
In addition to featuring more than 2,000 movie stills and images, the book will focus on the 007 lifestyle, the role of Bond as interpreted by the six actors who have played him on the big screen, and double-page features on every Bond film, with details of production history, cast, and crew.
According to an article at Double O Section, The James Bond Encyclopedia was previewed at this year’s Comic-Con.
‘Tanner’ writes that the hardback book is divided into sections such as James Bond, Bond Girls, villains, gadgets and vehicles (organized A to Z in each). He also writes that it appeared quite in-deth, but ‘didn’t seem to offer lots of new, previously unseen photos like Cork’s last Bond tome, The James Bond Legacy.’
Comparing the book to the previous Complete James Bond Movie Encyclopedia by Stephen Jay Rubin, co-author Cork noted that one of the big differences is that his book is officially licenced by EON–meaning no coverage of the 1967 spoof Casino Royale or the Never Say Never Again.
For the full report and details on the book, be sure to head over to Double O Section.
