This companion to the TV series of the "Gormenghast" trilogy provides an insight into the story, from the strange genius of Peake, the visionary author and illustrator, to the storyboard drawings of the award winning set designer Christopher Hobbs and the construction of the sets at Shepperton Studios. It includes illustrations and sketches which have never been publicly seen before, as well as the original notebooks with Peake's handwritten story notes and numerous marginal sketches. It also features profiles and interviews with the leading members of the production team and the cast.

From the Publisher:

Defying imitation, dreamlike and visionary, Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast Trilogy occupies a unique place in modern English fiction. Now, for the first time, Peake’s fantastic work of imagination has been brought to life in a dazzling production for the BBC. Written by Estelle Daniel, whose creative force as producer has contributed to the realization of Gormenghast as an unprecedented event in television, this illustrated companion sheds light on every facet of the Gormenghast story. From the strange genius of Peake, whose deeply affecting experiences in feudal China and World War II gave birth to the Gormenghast legend, to the reality of the production, The Art of Gormenghast is a stunning guide to this landmark series.

About the Author:

Estelle Daniel is the producer of the BBC TV series of Gormenghast. She joined the BBC in the early eighties and went on to work with Michael Wearing as his Head of Development for some 8 years, commissioning projects such as Middlemarch, Pride & Prejudice and Our Friends in the North.
