    Okay impressed as always @Agent_99. My regret visiting Berlin was noticing the Bud Spencer Museum early on, but not making time to visit. I did see the German Spy Museum there.


    Back to your local haunts, did you ever make it to Lock & Co. Hatters and take a good look around.



    My photos from July last year.

    I still haven't visited the hatters, @RichardTheBruce - one day I shall march boldly in and demand to try on the Tracy fedora!

    The Quiller Memorandum is a spy film with loads of beautiful Berlin locations. It's worth watching and then visiting a few!

    I love The Quiller Memorandum. Definitely one of my favourite non-Bond spy films along with the Harry Palmer 1960s trilogy of films.

    The EON poster and merch department could take a lesson in drawing. Back to the illustrated artwork of yesteryear thanks.

    Somebody sent me a link to this 'adult colouring book' recently. I'm too scared to order it. (Can't argue with 'Legendary James Bond and Award Winning Actor, Sex Symbol and Hot Gentleman', though.)

    British spy Bond seduces
    readers as a vampire in Kim
    Newman Dracula novel
    November 12, 2012 borgeditor
    Review by C.J. Bunce
    https://borg.com/2012/11/12/british-spy-bond-seduces-readers-as-a-vampire-in-kim-newman-dracula-novel/
    Re-released in book stores last month was Kim Newman’s alternate history/fantasy/steampunk-esque novel Dracula Cha Cha Cha (formerly published as Judgment of Tears), book three of the Anno Dracula series originally released in 1998. You need not read books one and two of the series to be able to fully dive into this incredible and bizarre parallel history story. With vampire books taking up an entire wall at Barnes & Noble, it’s probably a good time for this dense and satisfying novel to be available again. But what makes this even more relevant this year is that it is also an alternate history James Bond novel. That’s right, James, here goes by the Scottish name for James, Hamish, as in Hamish Bond. And Bond is still a spy, but he’s also a vampire, investigating Count Dracula in Rome in 1959.
    MORE
    Hot on the trail of a Russian spy with teeth like Jaws, a sharp-brimmed hat like Oddjob, and a white cat-like Blofeld from the movie You Only Live Twice, our spy Bond becomes intertwined in the two murder plots as he pays a visit to Beauregard, the elder and notable former spymaster from the Diogenes Club, the organization keeping an eye on Count Dracula’s actions. Bond still drives an Aston Martin, and drinks a “shaken, not stirred” blood martini. His lines are straight from the real-world Bond novels and even chapter headings are novel titles or plays on titles, such as From Moldavia with Love and Live and Let Die. Like an Ian Fleming novel, we get Bond engaged with a double-crossing Bond girl, some hand to hand fight scenes, including one where Geneviève must rescue Bond, and a great life and death car chase. Just as the new movie poster book cover evokes, Dracula Cha Cha Cha could make a great film.

    Offensive and funny. Can't all be the drinking in either case.

    Surprise in the latest episode of Death in Paradise : the two uniformed police officer of Saint Marie listen to some calypso, and among the songs, they find a version (by one of the suspects) of "Underneath the Mango Tree". No mention is made of James Bond, or DN, but the song is there, so it should count, right ? Scene here :

    Fabergé x 007

    Two of the world’s most revered cultural icons, Fabergé and James Bond, unite in a year where they both celebrate milestone anniversaries. Fabergé, the world’s most iconic artist jeweller, is delighted to announce that it will create a unique and captivating Fabergé x 007 Egg Objet, commemorating Fabergé's 180th anniversary and the 60th anniversary of the first James Bond film, Dr. No, which was released on 5th October 1962.


    The Fabergé x 007 Egg Objet will encapsulate the iconic stories woven into the histories of both Fabergé and James Bond. Designed by Fabergé’s Head of Design, Liisa Tallgren, and overseen by its Creative Director, Josina von dem Bussche-Kessell, the design of the egg will be a symphony of past, present and future, with nods to Bond’s legendary gadgets subtly integrated into the creation.

    In true Fabergé spirit, a series of surprises and mysterious elements will be hidden within, all set to be revealed in 2023 – a year marking 40 years since the release of Octopussy (1983), the film which featured a plot line centred around a Fabergé egg heist.

    The creation of the Fabergé x 007 Egg Objet is underway, with Fabergé’s team working closely with a dedicated Workmaster, based in England, who will be overseeing the construction of this masterpiece. The egg objet will take many months of development and craft, as it is set to feature the most technically advanced opening mechanism that Fabergé has ever produced, pushing the boundaries of innovation and craftsmanship to new realms, and will feature the rarest of gemstones, epitomising the creativity for which Fabergé is renowned. This unique work of art will interest collectors and aficionados the world over and presents an incredibly rare investment opportunity to own a piece inspired by cinematic history.

    Newly appointed Fabergé Creative Director Josina von dem Bussche-Kessell says: “The partnership with EON Productions and the James Bond film franchise represents our latest creative endeavour through which we are looking to set a new standard in modern-day objet d’arts, in a way that only Fabergé can. This is a thrilling opportunity for us to fuse the legendary on-screen storytelling of the world’s most famous secret agent with Fabergé’s globally celebrated artistry. With this unique and ground-breaking piece, these two icons will intersect where suspense entertainment meets engineering mastery in precious materials. At Fabergé, we have license to creatively push boundaries and we’re intending to make use of it like never before.”
