Overview

The Avengers burst onto televisions screens in the 1960’s, and the show’s mix of wit, adventure and beautiful women became an instant hit!

Now fifty years on, Marcus Hearn has been granted unparalleled access to the show’s production archives and has collected together a fabulous array of material to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Avengers.

Lavishly illustrated, with many unpublished stills, behind-the-scenes photos, and snaps from the ABC & LWT private archive, this is a spectacular portrait of the world's best-loved cult action-adventure series, and its classic sequel, The New Avengers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Avengers fans are in for a real treat..." - LA Times

"The Avengers exhibited more style and daring than is to be had on all of Milan's runways, and more wit and winks... than the oeuvres of Oscar Wilde and Monty Python combined." — The New York Times

"Exudes more sheer sexuality than American TV has previously handled... It's all high-wire melodrama, good-humoured fetishism and flamboyant self-mockery." — Playboy

"A definite must have for fans of the classic television series." - SciFi Mafia

"The perfect coffee table book for lovers of the show, the era, and the fashion." - She Does the City

For anyone who is a fan of the 1960's British television series THE AVENGERS, this book is treasure trove of photos of each season of the show. Starting with Ian Hendry as Doctor Davis Keel, to Honor Blackman as Cathy Gale, Diana Rigg as Mrs. Emma Peel, to Linda Thorson as Tara King a collection of photos, many in color, tell the story of each season. Many of the photos were taken the set while shooting. If your into THE AVENGERS this is a must for your collection.
