Terry O'Neill was given his first chance to photograph Sean Connery as James Bond in the film Goldfinger. From that moment, O'Neill's association with Bond was made: an enduring legacy that has carried through to the era of Daniel Craig.

It was O'Neill who captured gritty and roguish pictures of Connery on set, and it was O'Neill who framed the super-suave Roger Moore in Live and Let Die. His images of Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore are also important, celebrating the vital role of women in the James Bond world. But it is Terry O'Neill's casual, on-set photographs of a mischievous Connery walking around the casinos of Las Vegas or Roger Moore dancing on a bed with co-star Madeline Smith that show the other side of the world's most recognizable spy.

Terry O'Neill opens his archive to give readers - and viewers - the chance to enter the dazzling world of James Bond. Lavish color and black and white images are complemented by insights from O'Neill, alongside a series of original essays on the world of James Bond by BAFTA-longlisted film writer, James Clarke; and newly-conducted interviews with a number of actors featured in O'Neill's photographs.

Terry O'Neill CBE was one of the world's most collected photographers, with work hanging in national art galleries and private collections worldwide. From presidents to pop stars, he has photographed the frontline of fame for over six decades. No other photographer has embraced the span of fame to such an extent, capturing the icons of our age from Winston Churchill to Nelson Mandela, from Frank Sinatra and Elvis to Amy Winehouse, Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot.

James Clarke is the author of numerous books on and about the world of film, including The Pocket Essentials: Steven Spielberg, The Virgin Film Guide: War Films, The Virgin Film Guide: Coppola, Bodies in Heroic Motion: The Cinema of James Cameron and The Year of the Geek. Clarke writes for Little White Lies and has been published in Empire, Moviescope, Sci Fi Now, 3D World and 3D Artist.

What the press have said about this book...

"A Top Pick for 2020 Father's Day" - Kelli Acciardo, Parade

"While No Time to Die will be Craig's last time as 007, there is no sign the franchise is coming to a halt anytime soon. So grab your martini and take a look back at this unforgettable character's nearly 60 years of enviable spycraft." - Alexandra Schonfeld, Newsweek

“While the upcoming James Bond movie No Time To Die was pushed back until the fall, this collection of legendary photographer Terry O'Neill's on-set images—some never before seen—from Bond movies like Goldfinger, Diamonds are Forever, Live and Let Die, and Golden Eye, are a perfect way to prepare yourself for another dose of 007.”Town & Country Magazine
