Look Up! Look Down! Look Out! Remember when they used to hand paint movie posters? Boy, I do, those where the days. This book is an excellent chronicle of the evolution of movie advertising for the past 50 years, and all through the lens of the most successful and longest running franchise, James Bond. We start out with Dr. No imagery which for the most part was an exercise in typography, red, yellow and black. For the rest of Connery’s tenure we switch to wonderful hand painted renditions. Although what is up with the nude massage table painting? That is both weird and the greatest thing ever, like the portrait of Kramer in Seinfeld, kind of perfect. Once we get to the early 80’s photography begins to dominate. When the 90’s arrive you can see the prevalence of Photoshop and other digital compositing techniques, and by the time we enter the Craig era we see the stylization of photos to such an extent that it becomes painterly again. Fascinating, I didn’t expect a history book but what an archive this turned out to be, I wonder what another 50 years will bring?
