Barbican To Launch “James Bond” Retrospective.

So here’s a reason to book that trip to London. The Barbican Museum is set to launch an exhibition featuring 50 years of gadgets, cool cars and other geegaws from the enduring James Bond spy-flick franchise, The Guardian reports this morning.

Here’s the nut graf:

Designing 007: 50 Years of Bond Style promises to showcase five decades of gadgets, sets, costumes and cars, along with the blueprints, drawings and models that went into creating them. “It’s the unseen Bond,” said the show’s curator, fashion historian Bronwyn Cosgrave. “We’re showing the complete scope of design of a Bond film, which has never been done before.”

Cosgrave has worked on the show for the past two years with Bond producers Eon, with “unprecedented access” to the Bond archive in north London. Designed by architect Ab Rogers, the “immersive” show will take up the Barbican’s entire ground floor and a lower level theatre, with exhibits from Dr No, to this year’s forthcoming Skyfall.”
