A must have for any Downton fan! Jessica Fellows, 'The Chronicles of Downton Abbey: A New Era for Family, Friends, Lovers and Staff', will be out November 30th 2012 in the US and September 13th 2012 in the UK. It's the companion for season three. These books are full of beautiful pictures, character and set details and more! Here is the synopsis from Amazon:
In a time of change family, friends and honour matter more than ever…
It is 1920 and Downton Abbey is on the brink of a post-war world. New elements and intrigues thrive as the old social binds weaken.
The Downton Abbey Chronicles, carefully pieced together at the heart and hearth of the ancestral home of the Granthams, is a beautifully produced collection of every important member of the Downton estate.
This lavish book focuses on each character individually and examines their motivations, their actions and the inspirations behind them. An evocative source of story and background, it will take fans even deeper into the secret, beating heart of the house.
The companion for season's one & two is 'The World of Downton Abbey'.
Thanks to however-whatever-whenever.
