“The New James Bond…Living on the edge…It’s the only way he lives”
1987 was the end of a historic movie tradition as Brian Bysouth produced the last artist drawn painted James Bond film poster (Fascinating Brian Bysouth interview with Eddie Shannon of Film on Paper) for Timothy Dalton’s 007 debut as “The most dangerous Bond…Ever” in “The Living Daylights”. Bysouth has used the classic image of Bond viewed through the end of a gun barrel to fine effect and further embellished the finished design with great action scenes and marvellous renditions of the latest Bond-girl, Maryam d’Abo and of course the classic Aston Martin (in this case a V8 Vantage Volante). The original 1987 UK (country of origin) quad movie poster offered here is presented in high grade unrestored, folded (as issued) condition and perfectly suited to the landscape style for which it was designed for. Colours are bright and unfaded, the black background a deep black and the white areas truly bright. Hugely desirable and very collectable, it would be a worthy addition to any collection of James Bond cinematic movie memorabilia.
