BOND BOUND EXHIBITION IN LONDON

A major exhibition ‘Bond Bound: Ian Fleming & The Art of Cover Design’ will be on show at the Fleming Collection from 22 April to 28 June 2008. The exhibition, covering each book published, will also chart the role of artists and designers in creating and defining the Bond look. Casino Royale, the first of the Bond novels spanning half a century, established the James Bond brand. It was a compelling mixture of sex, style and violence that soon turned Bond into the most famous fictional secret agent in history. This provided artists and designers with invaluable opportunities to maximise their talents.

The exhibition will be a complete anthology of Ian Fleming’s literacy legacy, including the commissioning of Charlie Higson to write the bestselling Young Bond novels and ‘The Moneypenny Diaries’ by Samantha Weinberg, adding a female perspective to the Bond story though the eyes of the adoring secretary Miss Moneypenny, and the latest instalment in Bond’s adult life written as a tribute to Ian Fleming for the centenary by Sebastian Faulks.
