For Your Eyes Only
Celebrating the centenary of Ian Fleming’s birth, For Your Eyes Only was the first major exhibition devoted to the life and work of the man who created James Bond. This fascinating exhibition showed how Fleming drew upon his wartime service in Naval Intelligence, his work as a journalist and travel writer, and his own considerable imagination to create the iconic character of James Bond. Featured material, much on display for the first time, included original manuscripts, the jacket worn by Fleming on the Dieppe Raid of 1942, the autogyro Bond uses in the film You Only Live Twice and the ‘blood-splattered’ shirt worn by Daniel Craig in Casino Royale.
