If you're a fan of the FX horror series The Strain, Insight Editions' upcoming publication The Art of The Strain looks to be a must-buy item.

Written by Robert Abele with a foreword by Guillermo del Toro, who created The Strain with Chuck Hogan (with whom he wrote a trilogy of Strain novels), The Art of The Strain has the following description: 

Discover the secrets of FX’s hit TV show The Strain in this deluxe book, which delves into the twisted imagination of creator and producer Guillermo del Toro, co-creator Chuck Hogan, and showrunner Carlton Cuse to deliver a jaw-dropping insider’s look at the scariest show on television.
Covering both seasons one and two, The Art of The Strain features exclusive interviews with del Toro, Hogan, Cuse, and a wealth of behind-the-scenes talent, who reveal the full story of the creation of the show. From the challenge of adapting the original novels to the work that went into designing a uniquely terrifying vampire race, The Art of The Strain gives in-depth insight into all aspects of the production.
Packed with a wide range of stunning visuals, including concept art, candid on-set photos, and illuminating VFX breakdowns, the book showcases the wonderfully macabre vision that drives The Strain and explores the genesis of fan favorites like The Master, the Sun Hunters, bloodworms, strigoi stingers, and other eerily unforgettable elements of the show. Also featuring profiles of the show’s central characters and interviews with the cast members who play them, including Corey Stoll, David Bradley, and Richard Sammel, The Art of The Strain is packed with bloodcurdling images and razor-sharp revelations that will thrill fans everywhere.
