Since the first
James Bond film 'Doctor No' in1962, the poster images from the
007 movies have become works of art, highly collectable and
displayed in art galleries. Several different posters are
created for each film, for domestic and International markets,
as well as many different language versions. Books and
magazines about the posters have been published,
allowing collectors to see the range of artwork, many of which
was not used in the advertising campaigns for one reason or
another. Two of the most famous artists associated with the
James Bond film posters are Robert McGinnis and Frank
McCarthy, who worked on the 'Thunderball', 'You Only Live
Twice' and 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' posters. McGinnis
also designed the artwork for 'Diamonds Are Forever', 'Live
and Let Die', 'The Man with the Golden Gun' and the 1967
'spoof' 007 film 'Casino Royale'.
Robert Brownjohn, who
designed the film title sequences for 'From Russia With Love' and
'Goldfinger', also designed the artwork for the 'Goldfinger'
posters. Bob Peaks artwork was used for 'The Spy Who Loved Me'
