You probably haven’t spotted that there’s a new James Bond film out, because there’s been very little publicity. Called No Time to Die, it’s the 25th instalment in the official 007 franchise, and to tie in with its release a rather tasty book has been released, which tells all about the iconic Aston Martin DB5.
Simon Hugo’s lavish 280-page large-format book leaves no stone unturned in documenting the history of Bond’s Aston Martin DB5. Produced in conjunction with EON Productions, James Bond’s DB5 includes more than 300 photos, many drawn from the EON archives.
The DB5 has so far starred in nine Bond flicks, and Hugo’s book starts with the Bond producers’ initial letters to Aston Martin before detailing the modifications made to the car for the filming of Goldfinger, including EON’s original drawings and rare pictures of the cast and crew on location in Switzerland.
It goes on to explore the fascinating history of the DB5s that went out on tour and covers every subsequent appearance of the DB5 in the Bond movies, including the inside story of how it was seemingly destroyed in Skyfall before returning in triumph in No Time to Die. Its appearance in the latest Bond film is covered in depth, with unique photography and insider reports from the shoot in Matera, Italy.
