(Goodreads Synopsis)

Crimson Peak: The Art of Darkness is the perfect book for fans of the film. It is filled with interesting insights into the production (costumes, set, effects, motifs etc.) and it is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful books I own. Alongside stunning concept art and illustrations are additional images and information stuck in on loose sheets like a scrapbook. This is a book I will always treasure. Now I just need to wait a few more weeks until the film releases on DVD so I can watch it again.
