Bond Bound: Ian Fleming and the Art of Cover Design

Bond Bound: Ian Fleming and the Art of Cover Design

Summary

This beautiful catalogue was published by The Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation to accompany the exhibition Bond Bound: Ian Fleming and the Art of Cover Design. The exhibition opened to the public at the City Art Centre, Edinburgh in 2008, and toured New York and Los Angeles later that year.

Each of the Bond books carries a visual interpretation of the world created by Ian Fleming on its cover, and this publication dips its toe into that incredibly diverse aspect of the Bond canon. From the very first British hardback covers (some of which were designed by Fleming himself), through the subsequent years of reprints and international editions, up to the special Centenary volumes published in 2008, Bond Bound charts the role of artists in creating and defining the Bond look and features book covers, film posters, letters and previously unseen archive material.
