1. 'James Bond Encyclopedia' Coming In September 2009

    By Devin Zydel on 2009-04-25

    Due for release this September in the United States is James Bond Encyclopedia from DK Publishing.

    If the title sounds familiar to 007 fans, it’s because this book–written by John Cork and Collin Stutz–was originally released in late 2007 and included details on all of the James Bond films through 2006’s Casino Royale.

    There’s no official word yet regarding whether this new edition will have any updated content, but the 336 page count (compared to 320 before) seems to indicate that this may be the case. We’ll keep you updated.

    James Bond Encyclopedia will be published in hardback and retail for $40.00. It is due for release on 21 September. Cover artwork is yet to be revealed.

    The original publisher’s blurb follows:

    Created in full collaboration with Eon Productions, producers of the Bond movies, this illustrated celebration of the world’s most famous super-spy examines every aspect of 007’s world, with information on his history, style, and tastes, along with A-Z guides to his adversaries, allies, gadgets, cars, and, of course, the ever-glamorous Bond girls.

    John Cork and Collin Stutz authorities on every aspect of the James Bond story, wrote the acclaimed book on the James Bond phenomenon, James Bond: The Legacy, have produced, written and directed 30 special feature documentaries for MGM’s DVD releases of James Bond films, and contributed to The Ultimate James Bond: An Interactive Dossier CD-Rom for MGM Interactive.
