          The production quality exceeded my expectations. The book is underpriced. I am looking forward to volume 2, season 2. So, if volume 2 is not in the planning,you better get started Jon Logan. This is a must read, high quality book.

                    I've seen every interview, every video and read every Penny Dreadful article available out there, yet I still found immense amounts of new information in this book. If you want to get to know the characters and, over all, understand the show better, this is the book for you.

                    Every Penny Dreadful fan, seasoned or new, needs to get this book. It has approximately 202 pictures, (most of which I had never seen before) tons of concept art, behind the scenes, and everything you need to know about the making of the show.

                    It has an Ethan Chandler section and a separate one dedicated to The Werewolf. It also includes a section for Vanessa, Dorian, Victor, Brona, The Creature, Madame Kali, Mr. Lyle, Sembene, and Sir Malcolm, just to name a few (even Proteus!).
                    A few specifics about the book are: Hardcover with 176 glossy, magazine-style, pages. Dimensions: 11"x 9"
