Bond is for lovers

Last year an Italian sport magazine sold all James Bond films, one after the other, on a weekly term. And I got them all (except Casino Royal). Nearly every Friday night it was me and Mr. Bond. First I fell in love with the fascinating Connery but then a witty Moore made it. Call me old-fashioned.

So, you can imagine how delighted I was about this anniversary set of hardback books, published by Penguin U.K., celebrating Ian Fleming’s 100th birthday.

Just for the covers I would buy them. Designed by Michael Gillette, these covers are eye candy, beautifully capturing the spirit and lush of the classic James Bond.

We girls know, Bond is not really a spy. He's a handsome, rich, playful man, who - travelling around the world - sips Martini, drives fast cars and saves the world from the crazy super villain. But the Villain is just a detail. ;-) That's why it's all about style and not about explosions.

Since from the first Bond, producers thought about every detail, specially caring for opening titles, which until today became Design-classics.

Here is a very good collection of Bond openings.

Have a good Friday and a better weekend, Belle
