Are you missing Hawkins, Indiana and the Upside Down? Not to mention Eleven, Hopper, and the kids? You don’t have to wait for the third season of Stranger Things to get your fix. Del Rey’s new behind-the-scenes companion will immerse you in the making of the series with stories, photographs, and perfectly aged graphics. Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down by Gina McIntyre, with a foreword by Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, looks like it’s a product of the ’80s setting from the smash-hit Netflix series. The cover is tattered and stained, but don’t let that stop you from flipping through the pages. We have an exclusive look at some photos from the book, so you can get an idea of what it offers. Aww, these kids. Photos illustrate everything from them hamming it up between takes to preparing for emotional scenes, like the shot of Millie Bobby Brown from season two below. The young actors share insight into their characters in the book and comments about the series’ incredible success. And of course, the book includes a whole section on the Upside Down and the Demogorgon. The below image shows the monster’s performer Mark Steger with his fearsome head off in between takes. Visit the gallery below to view Dustin Henderson’s Dungeons and Dragons character sheet, the Hawkins map, and the Morse code guide that comes with the book. Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down is out on October 30.
