|World of Downton Abbey|
|Lavinia from World of Downton Abbey|
My wonderful men got me the book The World of Downton Abbey for Mother's Day. I have been so busy that I have only been able to flip through and read a few pages. And drool over a few photographs. As you can see from the photographs, this is a gorgeous hardcover book with lots of detail in the photos and tons of information on the period and on the production itself. Written by Jessica Fellowes with an introduction by her uncle Julian Fellowes, it is unusually well done for something put together quickly to cash in on Downton fever.

A must have for all of us suffering from "Downton Withdrawal", a medically recognized condition which worsens on Sunday nights, this will ease the pain of the wait until next January for season two. My bloggy buddy Kate from Leeds (who now has her own blog) has been raving about this book since she received it as a birthday present I believe. I now know what she has been talking about! So off I go to be bitten by blackflies and to snuggle up with my new book. I love staring at those dresses, never mind the settings inside and outside of those wonderful country homes like Highclere Castle. Byeeeeeeee!
