Designing 007 exhibition now in Toronto, and the classic 007 travel guide, Thrilling Cities

Celebrate Skyfall in style.

Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style is now at the Toronto International Film Festival, running through January 2, following its run in London, which The Economist covered in From Britain With Love.

Ian Fleming penned several nonfiction works, including Thrilling Cities, a 1963 guide to 13 flashy world cities. I used it as a guide to Hong Kong in a suave tour. Used copies are widely available.
