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.
This gorgeous book—illustrated with sketches and research from the production team, as well as on-set photographs from seasons 1 and 2—takes us even deeper into that world of Downton, with fresh insights into the story and characters as well as interesting social history before and during the First World War.
