Bond at Bletchley Park: Illustrations and Inspirat
This summer James Bond comes to Bletchley Park via a new exhibition titled Bond at Bletchley Park: Illustrations and Inspirations. On display in Hut 12, the temporary art exhibition celebrates Ian Fleming’s original James Bond series, as well as the most recent 007 novels written by Anthony Horowitz.

It also includes a special section presenting new research into Fleming’s connection to Bletchley Park and explores how his work in naval intelligence helped inspire the creation of the James Bond books.

The newly commissioned artworks have been created for a project by Eazl with a specially selected roster of emerging and mid-career artists from the UK and beyond. Participating artists include Threadneedle Prize finalists David Storey and Tomas Tichy, the Australian painter Marc Freeman, and the prize-winning illustrator Finn Dean. The pieces are each inspired by a specific scene, theme or character from a James Bond novel.

The exhibition is part of a wider project organised by social enterprise Eazl, with the kind permission of Ian Fleming Publications. The project will culminate in a charity auction in London, in October 2018.

The exhibition coincides with the release of the second official Bond novel by Horowitz Forever and a Day, the follow up to the critically acclaimed Trigger Mortis.
