James Bond. Never-before-seen photos, movie posters, storyboard illustrations and
more than a few surprises (like the 'Woody Allen' version of Casino Royale) are
included in this magnificent tome. This is not just another casual bedtime read, though-
make sure you own a HEAVY OAK TABLE to support the book before you buy.
I wish there was a way to give this behemoth a TEN STAR RATING...because I would.
DON'T SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIFE IN BITTER REGRET, Bond fans- plunk down

There is no paper jacket, but because of the size and heft of this tome, it would probably be difficult to keep one on undamaged. The book's cover lookes like red pebble-grained snakeskin or lizard and the inside front and back cover pages are copies of a shooting schedule from "From Russia With Love". The pages are high-quality glossy paper and there seems to be something on just about every page, that's why I count 600 as opposed to the 592 stated. One page has a little plastic pocket containing a filmstrip of 12 original frames from a Dr. No. original 35mm print.
I am glad to see that all of the movies from Dr. No to Skyfall are included as well as Never Say Never Again. Other reviewers have complained that much of the book is taken from DVD special features. Well, I like having a choice to either watch the features or read them. Many photos are included that have not been released elsewhere.
I haven't looked much beyond the first few pages because this is the kind of book I love to consume a small serving at a time - to savor like a fine Port. For anyone who is a Bondophille, your Bond collection is not complete without The James Bond Archives.
But the content of the book, seems to be fairly on the money. It's sort of like a big documentary in print form, with the writing mostly consisting of quotes from the cast and crew involved in the Bond films. I've noticed a lot of it is from interviews used in the Patrick Macnee narrated 'Inside Bond' documentaries, that can be found on the DVDs/Blu Rays.
My favourite thing about the book would probably be the photos. I love the big one page photos that are common throughout the book. There is no shortage of unseen photos, and documents, notes etc.
The structure of the book is divided in to chapters on each film (including one each for the unofficial films). The first chapter is about Ian Fleming, and mostly consists of an interview with him by Playboy magazine.
Another little thing I found exciting, was the strip of Dr No film in the front of the book. A piece of one of the original prints of the film, so I imagine it would be fairly old, I'd like to know the exact details of it.
So overall, it's a bit like the latest Bond film 'Skyfall' this book. If you're a Bond fan, you should definitely buy it, and you'll enjoy it. But it just wasn't quite as magical as I thought it would be. But still great though.
