Introducing the James Bond Destination book by Assouline, a large format coffee table book celebrating the world and travels of 007. From London to Jamaica and beyond, Bond's adventures have spanned the world, taking audiences to over a hundred real-life locations in the past six decades. This meticulously researched book takes you around the globe and back, with insights from 007 producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and many key parts of the film-making team.
Backstory. In the early to mid-'60s, when international travel was a rarity, Bond films captivated audiences, igniting dreams of glamorous vacations and solidifying the franchise as a trusted guide to adventure. As travel became more accessible, the Bond experience evolved to stay ahead.
Details. In James Bond Destinations, explore the iconic places that have played a pivotal role in Bond's jet-setting journeys. Each chapter offers insider insights and unforgettable scenes, like Ursula Andress emerging from Jamaican waters, Daniel Craig's high-speed car chase in Rome, and Roger Moore's epic showdown on a Sugarloaf cable car in Rio. Discover how the streets of Rome in Spectre required meticulous blocking, and Venice's Grand Canal closed for the first time in centuries for Casino Royale, allowing Daniel Craig's Bond to sail unobstructed.
