In 1995, Bond arrived in the shape of Pierce Brosnan. He brought a new sensitivity to the classic, winning Bond formula. Productions grew more complex and the essence of James Bond’s world was relayed with devoted attention to detail.
The packaging design features a pre-title action sequence storyboard from GoldenEye (1995) and the concept for a stealth ship in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997).

THE BOND ARCHIVE
The distinct range tells the story of innovation over 60 years and the pioneering character attributes of James Bond and The Macallan. James Bond is a modern innovator and man of perennial evolution. The Bond films have become closely associated with ingenious 007 gadgets that are used on his mission to deliver for the greater good; and have become a hallmark of the franchise’s popularity.
Decade IV explores the Bond innovations and archives of the 1990s. The pack design features concept art for the Stealth Ship in Tomorrow Never Dies 1997 and a pre-title sequence storyboard from GoldenEye(1995).
The concept art in Tomorrow Never Dies illustrates the primary antagonist Elliot Carver’s Stealth Ship; this sketch is very close to the prop in the final production.
