As any regular visitor to this site will know, we are constantly leafing through magazines (both popular and obscure) from all around the world, looking for James Bond related content. As you'd expect, the number of magazines featuring articles about James Bond reaches a peak with the release of a new film, and even magazines that don't have any articles about the new film, will often feature some advertising related to 007. Here is a selection of print ads we found this year, as the build up to the release of Spectre reached a crescendo. Found in issues of Empire, Esquire, F___, GQ, NME, Playboy, Premiere, Rolling Stone, TV Media, and more; most are in English - including some from India and Malaysia, but there are also a few in Polish, Croatian, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and Dutch. Products include Omega, Heinekin, Sony, Gillette, Bollinger, Corgi, Scalextric, fragrances, Blu-ray, and Mazda cars.
