Publisher Comments:

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.

If you love period dramas and crackling wit and suspense, you love Downton Abbey the wonderful BBC show now in its second season on Public Television. And you will love The World of Downton Abbey! Read all the background information for the characters and the actors and actresses who bring them to life. See the house and grounds in all its glory. Bask in all the history and ceremony of the times. It doesn't get any better than this especially for an Anglophile like me. If you're not one already you will be by the time you finish devouring this delicious read, a feast for the eyes and the mind.
