James Bond


October, 2012. As Adele’s godawful Skyfall song (or ‘Crumble’ as some of us took to calling it) was inflicted on the world, I was asked to produce a feature on all the James Bond themes that had gone before. This is it. The Skyfall song won an Oscar. I really, truly despair.

At the same time, there was also this thing about weird Bond posters. This would have been a lot better if we’d been allowed to use all the images we wanted. But Dorling Kindersley, whose book we were drawing from, would only release eight.

And also, a couple of months earlier when the first pictures of Javier Bardem’s Skyfall baddie Silva were revealed, I wrote this piece on the previous Bond villains. It was supposed to be sartorially angled, and since my fashion sense was arrested in about 1993 I was arguably not the man for that job… but I think I just about got away with it.
