Description

Madison Avenue magic - The twists, turns, and talents that make Mad Men. With its brilliant writing, spot-on acting, faultless art direction, impeccable costume design, Mad Men is a landmark for cable television. Never before has a period series offered such compelling plotlines alongside such painstaking attention to detail and accuracy. As the show's personal and professional machinations evolve, so too are the minutiae and the milestones of history in motion, from the shifting height of hemlines to the struggles of the civil rights movement. This book is TASCHEN's tribute to Mad Men's television art.It chronicles all seven seasons of the series with on-set photographs, many published here for the first time, alongside extensive and candid interviews with the show's creator, Matt Weiner, and Mad Men's superstar ensemble of actors, set designers, costume designers, producers, directors, writers, including Jon Hamm (Don), Elisabeth Moss (Peggy), Christina Hendricks (Joan), January Jones (Betty), Jessica Pare (Megan), Vincent Kartheiser (Pete), Kiernan Shipka (Sally), Robert Morse (Cooper), John Slattery (Roger), Scott Hornbacher (producer), Janie Bryant (costume designer), and Lisa Albert (writer). From the plot twists that took our breath away, to the unforgettable outfits; from the shapes and textures of '60s decor to to the very real intricacies of relationships, discover the ideas, inspirations, and talents that brought human lives and human history together on the small screen.show more
