UPDATE (7:30 a.m.) — Max Pemberton, Peter Lamont’s co-writer of a memoir on the production designer’s career, said in a written statement that the project has been “moved to another publisher”  other than Tomahawk Press and will proceed. He didn’t provide additional details.

UPDATE II (8:50 a.m.) — Pemberton IN A STATEMENT ON FACEBOOK says, “We have simply moved on to a different publisher due to creative differences. The book is still going ahead. The new publisher and availability will be announced in due course.”

ORIGINAL POST: Tomahawk Press, IN A MARCH 7 ANNOUNCEMENT ON ITS FACEBOOK PAGE, said a memoir by former 007 production designer Peter Lamont had been canceled.

Here’s the text:

It is with the greatest regret that we have to announce that the authors of Peter Lamont – The Man With the Golden Eye have decided not to continue with this project. Tomahawk Press is highly regarded worldwide for the quality of our books, and we had planned something really special with this book – a beautifully designed large-format publication to do justice to all of Peter Lamont’s work. We are saddened by the authors’ decision, and apologise to the hundreds of you that had expressed interest and the dozens of reviewers that had been put on our list for review copies.

An item on the website FROM SWEDEN WITH LOVE says the memoir is to be published “from a different publisher [to be revealed later].” No other details were provided in that post. Tomahawk originally announced the Lamont memoir in September 2013.

Lamont, 85, began working on the 007 film series as a draftsman on Goldfinger. He succeeded Ken Adam as art designer for 1981’s For Your Eyes Only. His last Bond film was 2006’s Casino Royale.

  1. the name peter lamont is synonymous in the world of james bond
    movies,as much as the stunt’s are fantastic, and out of this world.
    so is the set design’s.
    everybody whose a bond fan is familiar with ken adam but peter lamont
    is also a veteran set designer. the scenery of a bond film is very important, the audience viewing has to believe what their watching is
    real.
    if you’ve seen james camron’s ‘titanic’ then you will understand what i’am talking about, peter lamont’s set design on this movie is awesome
    also james camron’s spy action comedy ‘true lies’ lamont’s work is
    brilliant. however any book publisher that get’s the legendary peter lamont’s memoir’s to publish should count themselves lucky.
