Jesse McLean's The Art and Making of Hannibal: The Television Series offers a deeper examination into the television series for the fans. It profiles the actors who played the main and recurring characters along with the characters' motivations for the television series and how that might differ from Thomas Harris' original novels. McLean provides extensive coverage on the creation of props, most of which were prosthetics used as stand-ins for victims or other body parts, and how the filmmakers set up shots for maximum effect. Not all of the information is up-to-date with the ending of the television series, but it still provides enough to warrant a place as a companion volume to home media collections of the show. The pages are high quality and glossy and the cover is gorgeous. ( )

[3.5 out of 5 stars, but I rounded it up to 4 because a simple 3 was too low]
The Art and Making of Hannibal is a nice little behind the scenes look at how Hannibal as made. While not as comprehensive as some of Titan Books' other offerings in this category, it's still an entertaining and informative read, even if it never really goes much deeper than surface fluff with tidbits of information. The design and photos featured throughout the book are beautiful as promised, however a number of other features were lacking. The original description for the book promised musical notations and script excerpts and these are nowhere to be found within the roughly 170 pages of the book. While this isn't a major deal as all the scripts have been published on the LivingDeadGuy website, it's still frustrating for a book to say it will include something and then not include it.

That being said, it's still a nice read and a wonderful gift for any fan of the show. ( )
