Book review: Blood, Sweat and Bond: Behind the Scenes of Spectre
I’ve just been sent a beautiful coffee table book Blood, Sweat and Bond: Behind the Scenes of Spectre which, as the title suggests, is packed with stunning behind-the-scenes pictures from the latest Bond film Spectre.
The 200-page hardback has been ‘curated’ by leading photographer Rankin and is packed to the rafters with very arty pictures from the film. These aren’t your standard behind-the-scenes snaps – nearly all of these images are almost works of art in themselves.
Rankin himself did much of the photography for the book but it also features contributions from celebrity photographers including Mary McCartney, Graciela Iturbide, Anderson & Low and Brigitte Lacombe.
It’s a classy product – and the Slovakian printers deserve a mention too, as it is beautifully printed – and my only minor criticism is that some of the text is a bit small…
Blood, Sweat and Bond: Behind the Scenes of Spectre is published by Dorling Kindersley, £25 ISBN: 9780241207147
