Seductive Espionage: The World of Yuki 7

Long, long time readers of the Ramble may recall me raving about Fleet Street Scandal a few years back. A collaborative art project by Kevin Dart and Chris Turnham, the outfit has produced movie posters for films that never existed, illustrations that classic works have always deserved, and in general art that seems to harken back to a bygone time.

Now, half of Fleet Street Scandal, Kevin Dart, is about to release a book that encompasses all of that, Seductive Espionage: The World of Yuki 7.

Seductive Espionage is an overview of the "Yuki 7" spy films of the 1960s, including movie posters, lobby cards, film stills, the whole shebang. Of course, there never was such a thing as a "Yuki 7" film, but that's not stopping Dart.

With the help of Stephane Coedel, Dart has put together a "trailer" for the book, disguised as a trailer for "A Kiss from Tokyo," a Yuki 7 adventure. Behold:

The book is available for preorder from the Fleet Street Scandal site, in both regular and limited editions. I've placed my order. Why haven't you?

What a wonderful trailer. Wish there was a movie. I love those 60's movies.
Oh my...that is sweet...
Oh, too brilliant -- perfect sixties spyflix! Have you seen the French spoof OSS 117?
I saw a trailer for it a little while back, Stu, but haven't seen the flick yet. Is it worth hunting down?
It is certainly worth the effort. They made a real effort to reproduce the look and feel of a1960s spy-fi film, while keeping tongue in cheek. Very amusing...
Thanks for the tip, Stu! I'll see if I can track down a copy.
