Vinyl Record Art Champions Art Vinyl; Celebrate The Best In James Bond Record Cover Art & Design

On the 23nd of July, Art Vinyl will celebrate 50 years of James Bond Soundtracks at the Aston Martin W-One showroom in Mayfair. The exhibition celebrates the best in art, photography and graphic design for the numerous soundtracks from the very first Dr. No, all the way through to last year’s smash hit Skyfall (2012).

According to Art Vinyl founder Andrew Heeps, “As a kid growing up, these soundtracks were like posters for me. Legendary scenes were often captured in a montage, showing the action and glamour associated with the films. To be showcasing these sleeve designs at Aston Martin is like a dream come true as we bring some affordable Art Vinyl glamour and style to Mayfair”.

This James Bond Art Vinyl exhibition will be the first time so many Bond records will be shown together in what is a celebration of those unsung design heroes behind the graphics, typography, photography, set design all of whom contributors to the overall visual package that entice us to discover the music that lies within.

In a year where Aston Martin, the car synonymous with the films celebrates its 100th birthday, it is very fitting that this tribute should find such a suitable location. The James Bond franchise has very much been the best in audio and visual at the time of each film release so this exhibition will span 50 years from that famous opening guitar by Monty Norman all the way to Oscar winning Paul Epworth and his Skyfall theme, albeit as a visual representation embodied in vinyl.

The exhibition will be open to the public from July 23rd until August 23rd at Aston Martin W-One, Brook House, 113 Park Lane, Mayfair London, W1K 7AJ.
