If you love the cult TV show, you might want to invest in Matthew Weiner’s Mad Men (Taschen). And when we say invest, we mean invest.

There are three versions of this set, with the most affordable of the trio pictured above. it is a celebration of the 1960s-based shows, as well as a showcase for its imagery.

Volume one of the set chronicles the show’s seven seasons with ‘sequential stills’ and key script excerpts. The long-running in saga in detail and in pictures to flick through again and again,

Volume two goes a little deeper, offering ‘a wealth of’ behind-the-scenes insights with on-set photographs, production ephemera, costume designs, writers’ notes plus ‘candid’ interviews with Mad Men creator, Matthew Weiner as well as the ‘Writers’ Room’ (Lisa Albert, Semi Chellas, Jonathan Igla, Andre & Maria Jacquemetton, Janet Leahy, Erin Levy, Tom Smuts and Carly Wray) , the directors, director of photography), set designer and star Jon Hamm. The kind of detail any obsessive of the show would want to hand.

Its a hardcover set, selling for £87.75. It ships from July, but you can pre-order now. It is available from Amazon or directly from Taschen.

If you want more, there is more. There are two Art Editions too. The first Art Edition of 500 numbered copies, each signed by Matthew Weiner and with the complete Mad Men scripts in seven volumes, quarterbound in a slipcase. You also get a print of the Season 6 artwork, signed by Brian Sanders. That is quoted at $850.

A step up from that is a limited Art Edition of just 12, same as above, but with a copy of the original script from the 2005 pilot episode, signed by all cast members. That is quoted at $5,000. Yikes.
