Description by OLDIES.com:

Published on the centenary of Ian Fleming's birth, For Your Eyes Only is a thrilling look into the intertwined worlds of James Bond and Ian Fleming. The book explores how Fleming's 007 emerged against the background of the Second World War and the Cold War, and how Bond's world was based on the realities--and fantasies-- of Fleming's life as a wartime spy-master and peacetime bon viveur. It also answers the question that has obsessed generations of Bond fans over the years: where does the world of Ian Fleming end, and that of James Bond begin?

Stylishly illustrated, For Your Eyes Only will incorporate a treasure-trove of gadgets, costumes, props, and storyboards from the films - Daniel Craig's blood-stained shirt from Casino Royale, the Aston Martin DB5, complete with weaponry - as well as memorabilia from Fleming's personal archive: his smoking jacket, the manuscript for Casino Royale, his golden typewriter, his guns, and much more.

Alongside this array of extraordinary visuals, Ben MacIntyre tells the story of how Fleming created the most popular legend of all time. He looks at the real people on whom the writer based his fictional creations - friends, colleagues, lovers, and of course, the notorious villains. Exploring the tradition of spy fiction past and present - with specific attention to the Cold War - MacIntyre explains the astonishing legacy of the Bond books and the enduring appeal of the timeless 007.
