Art by Boris Grinsson (1907-1999)


Unframed: 90 x 121 in. (229 x 309 cm)


Boris Grinsson created a truly stunning piece for this large French billboard poster. This poster was printed in four sections, which were designed to overlap when pasted onto billboards.


This very rare billboard poster was printed in four separate sheets, and was pasted onto billboards. Therefore only unused examples survived, of which not many have ever surfaced.


Following the success of Dr. No, Eon Production's budget for this second Bond film was dramatically increased. This film was also directed by Terence Young, and again stars Sean Connery as Bond. It was based on Ian Fleming's 1957 novel. The film was a huge box-office success. It heralded the debut of Desmond Llewelyn as Q, a role that he would play for thirty-six years.
