A lavish look at the real world--both the secret history and the behind-the-scenes drama--of the spellbinding Emmy Award-winning Masterpiece TV series Downton Abbey
 
April 1912. The sun is rising behind Downton Abbey, a great and splendid house in a great and splendid park. So secure does it appear that it seems as if the way it represents will last for another thousand years. It won''t.
 
Millions of American viewers were enthralled by the world of Downton Abbey, the mesmerizing TV drama of the aristocratic Crawley family--and their servants--on the verge of dramatic change. On the eve of Season 2 of the TV presentation, this gorgeous book--illustrated with sketches and research from the production team, as well as on-set photographs from both seasons--takes us even deeper into that world, with fresh insights into the story and characters as well as the social history.

Editorial Reviews

Acclaim for Downton Abbey:
 
"This extraordinary upstairs-downstairs drama, written by Oscar-winning ''Gosford Park'' screenwriter Julian Fellowes, is a dramatic, intelligent, soapy, comic, and wise piece of work." --The Boston Globe
 
"There is no mystery about the potency of this series, slathered in wit, powered by storytelling of a high order." --The Wall Street Journal
 
"Possibly the best show of the year...''Downton Abbey'' is all that ''Upstairs, Downstairs'' was, and more." --The Los Angeles Times
