BOND ON SET: FILMING SKYFALL released

Bond on Set: Filming Skyfall has been released by DK Books. The book is a collection of candid behind the scenes photographs from the set of the latest Bond film by official photographer Greg Williams.

Previous "Bond on Set" books have covered Die Another Day, Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.

The photos are terrific, but I miss "making of" books that actually tell the story of the filming (you know, with words). Licence To Kill, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, and The World Is Not Enough all had nicely informative official "making of" books. And, of course, the unofficial The Making of On Her Majesty's Secret Service by Charles Helfenstein is the greatest of all the Bond "making of" books, IMO.

But if you crave behind the scenes pics, then this is a must buy.

Purchase Bond on Set: Filming Skyfall from Amazon.com (U.S.) and Amazon.co.uk (UK).

    1. Ha, ha! Yes, it does. But when I enlarged the pic, I got this strong 'Red Grant waiting to blow Bond away when he gets back to his car' vibe.

  2. I have the previous three "Bond On Set" books and I agree that a little more written info would have been fantastic. Of course, the lack of text in this "Skyfall" edition isn't gonna stop me from buying it.
    Thanks for the heads-up!
