Bond Girls Are Forever

£13.99

Product description

Dust jacket has minor wear along the top edge and one straight indentation mark in the centre of the front. The first official book highlighting the Bond girl phenomenon, by a Bond girl. How has the iconic status of the Bond girl endured for so long? This book explores how the archetype of the 'Bond girl' has evolved over the last forty years and reveals how she became and continues to be one of the strongest and most resilient symbols of 20th century pop culture. Maryam d'Abo describes how Bond girls have reflected and defined the changing image of women in the real world. Some of the most striking and memorable of the actresses who took on the Bond challenge - from Ursula Andress to Judi Dench - also reveal for the first time the true stories behind the role that changed their lives. With archive images of forty years of the Bond girl phenomenon and with contributions from the women behind the Bond girls themselves, Bond Girls are Forever is a beautifully produced tribute to a cultural icon that is both rebel and role model.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
