James Bond The Secret History


John Blake Publishing is delighted to announce the publication of James Bond: The Secret History, in which Sean Egan explores the stories behind one of Britain’s most recognised and stylish cultural icons.

The latest film in the franchise Spectre took £94m in ticket sales in 2015, and in 2016 overtook Avatar to become the third highest grossing film of all time in the UK. Daniel Craig’s Bond movies have grossed over £2 billion worldwide, and given that Craig has now confirmed he will continue with the franchise until at least 2020, it is clear that Bond-fever looks set to grip audiences for many years to come.

Sean Egan has interviewed many of those who have shaped the Bond universe over the last half century, including Roger Moore; GoldenEye and Casino Royale director Martin Campbell; composer of the iconic Bond theme Monty Norman; and David V Picker, the film executive who brokered the deal to get Sean Connery as Bond.

James Bond: The Secret History is published by John Blake Publishing in hardback on 25th February and priced £16.99
