Copyright (c) Jane Austen’s World. The Cranford Companion, a book by Sue Birtwistle and Susie Conklin, the co-creators of the wildly popular series based on the Cranford books by Elizabeth Gaskell, is now available for purchase. The miniseries, produced by the BBC, aired last year in the United States on PBS.
Lushly illustrated in full color photographs, this companion book will provide fans of the two mini-series, Cranford and Return to Cranford, with all the behind the scenes stories about the production, film locations, map of Cranford, and the characters and actors who portray them. Included are points of historic interest, such as the building of the railroads, as well as information on etiquette, the fairer sex, Victorian society and more.
It is hard to describe the book when I think a short video can demonstrate all its fabulous features so much better!
My reviews of the series:
- Cranford is a Delightful Place to Visit
- Return to Cranford: A Delight
- Thoughts about ‘Return to Cranford’ or I’m Just Mad About Miss Maddie
