TASCHEN's effortlessly cool two-volume book set is filled to the brim with stills from the show, stunning costume details, interviews with the cast and crew, and excerpts from the award-winning script.

You wouldn't think it would be possible to create an object as good-looking as Mad Men itself, but art book publisher TASCHEN has done it. Matthew Weiner. Mad Men (the book's full title) is enormous yet sleek, as beautifully appointed as January Jones in evening attire, and as well-curated as an ad man's liquor cabinet.

The book's first volume showcases photo stills from all of the show's best moments, alongside the snappy scripts that made them so unforgettable. The second volume is packed with interviews, production ephemera, and design notes for those mouth-watering costumes. Take a peek inside the book below.

We don’t know about you, but we’ve been pausing the show to ogle the costumes. And makeup. And jewelry. And sets. And now we don’t have to.
