When James Bond was first introduced to a worldwide cinema audience back in 1962, we suddenly entered a world beyond our imagination. Exotic places like Jamaica, Istanbul, Japan, Thailand and the Bahamas became synonyms for 007’s exciting adventures and were instantly part of the success formula. Nowadays, cheap international travel makes it possible for everyone to visit these locations and that is exactly what ‘On the tracks of 007’ will encourage you to do. In this detailed field guide, authors Martijn Mulder and the late Dirk Kloosterboer use 30 travel stories to explain exactly where even the smallest James Bond film scene was shot. Listing all used locations from Dr. No (1962) to Casino Royale (2006) and includes information on the latest Bond film Quantum of Solace (2008), ‘On the tracks of 007’ brings you as close to the locations as you can get, enabling you to relive your favourite James Bond scenes and travel the world within the turn of a page. The large paperback book has a very unique, colourful design and features no less than 665 photographs of how the filming locations look today. Together with carefully researched information – both on the history of the films and the locations – this 288 page travel guide is simply a must-have for fans, film buffs and adventurers. Includes a foreword by four time Bond director Guy Hamilton. “Anyone who has the desire to travel in the tracks of 007 will find this excellent book a wonderful guide to the many exotic (and some not so exotic) locations around the world. Where the Bond traveller may once have wasted many valuable hours in an effort to locate the various film locations in whichever country, Martijn Mulder and (the late) Dirk Kloosterboer’s exhaustive work has lifted that burden from all 007 holidaymakers, making their trip to that country even more enjoyable. No Bond fan who’s thinking of visiting any of the countries in which 007 has had adventures should be without this indispensable guide!” Graham Rye – Editor & Publisher – 007 MAGAZINE
