Ken Adam Designs the Movies : James Bond and Beyond Hardback
This book showcases the drawings of Ken Adam, the man who has created some of the most iconic and memorable sets in the history of film.
Presented chronologically, the book takes us from design sketches for his earliest movies, including Around theWorld in Eighty Days, through his Oscar-winning work with Stanley Kubrick, to production designs for what are probably his most celebrated films - the first seven James Bond movies, including Dr No, Goldfinger, Diamonds are Forever and Moonraker.
Also included are production drawings for classics such as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Goodbye, Mr Chips, Sleuth and The Last Emperor.
Adam's virtuoso sketches for films and other projects are accompanied by illuminating commentary from the eminent Sir Christopher Frayling, and together present an unrivalled archive of breathtaking and inspirational production design.
