Our "Downton Abbey" display at Book Passage.
Book Passage customers are keen on not just books about the series, like the lavish pictorial, The World of Downton Abbey (St. Martins, $29.99) by Jessica Fellows (the niece of show writer Julian Fellows), but also books which tie in directly to the story on the screen, like Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey: The Lost Legacy of Highclere Castle, by the Countess of Carnarvon (Broadway, $15.99). And then there are related titles like the recollections of a lady’s maid Rose: My Life in Service to Lady Astor (Penguin, $15.00), by Rosina Harrison - and What the Butler Winked At (Westholme Publishing, $14.95), by Eric Horne, a memoir by a someone who worked as a butler for more than 50 years. And don't forget Below Stairs: The Classic Kitchen Maid's Memoir That Inspired "Upstairs, Downstairs" and "Downton Abbey" (St. Martins, $22.99) by Margaret Powell. It too is very good.
