I was curious if there are any further details on the 500+ page XL James Bond book that is coming later in the year. I believe the publisher is Taschen and editor is Paul Duncan.

Pretty exciting run of books on the way. The Bond on Bond one by Roger Moore should be great as well. I also saw that Life books is doing one called Life 50 years of James Bond: On the run with 007 from Dr. No to Skyfall.

Oh, my, I didn't know about this Taschen book. That should be amazing. I have the Taschen MAGIC and CIRCUS books.

I'm excited for the poster book. The 50th Anniversary poster will be or would make a great cover and hopefully it comes out in September giving me something to look forward to before the Skyfall release. http://www.thebookbo...-coming-in.html

I'm looking forward to many of them. The posters, XL, Bond On Set. I'm curious if DK's The Bond Chronicle will be any good? Hopefully not fluff or recycled items from their Encyclopedia releases...

I come back to John Cork's James Bond The Legacy book quite a bit. Was just reading it again recently. Really wish we had books like The Making of OHMSS for all of the films. Or even several films combined. I know at times there isn't a ton to tell.

I guess I look at Legacy as a nice companion to the DVD documentaries as well as the Bond Girls Are Forever book.
