New book on James Bond’s guns

A book on the guns of James Bond has just been published in English for the first time.


A couple of years go I was sent a book on James Bond’s guns by Italian firearms expert Paolo Tagini.

The problem with it for me – and most of my readers – is that it is in Italian. But while I can just about follow the book thanks to knowing some Spanish, I never really knew how to present it.

It is packed with photos of many guns from the books and films, book covers, films posters and images from the films. Because of that I considered a video showing some of the content. But I simply never got started on it.

However, the great news is that Paolo has just published an English language version for the Kindle. It’s been updated to include the guns from Trigger Mortis and SPECTRE too, so completely up to date.

You can buy it from Amazon and if you don’t have a Kindle device, you can download the iOS or Android app, or read it on your PC.
