The Art and Making of The Handmaid’s Tale Book Review

The Art and Making of The Handmaid’s Tale Book Review

The Art and Making of The Handmaid’s Tale is a beautifully crafted book. It brings in depth interviews with Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale novel author), Elisabeth Moss and director Reed Morano.

On Elisabeth’s interview she says about being a fan of the novel before signing on to the show:

“It’s been such a gift to have that book as a guide. How rare is it that you have an entire novel that’s in your character’s voice? Her innermost thoughts? It’s something that just doesn’t happen and, on top of that, it’s also so beautifully written.”

The second chapter talks about building Gilead and Morano comments

“There’s so much technology that exists now that didn’t when Margaret wrote the book that needed to be taken into consideration.”

The chapter brings many set photos, and a map of what America looks like in the hands of Gilead leaders. It describes how everything was meticulously created, from the Waterford’s house, to the exterior, the Red Center, the props.

The section about Casting, brings information and interviews with all the actors and how they brought their characters to life. It also brings many behind scenes information such as music, writing, props, visual effects.

The second part of the book talks about Season 2 and moving on beyond the novels, showing the colonies, the “unwomen”, The Boston Globe where June spends a good portion of season 2 hiding and waiting to be rescued, Cherry Jones who was cast as June’s mother, Holy, and Sydney Sweeney as the sweet and naïve Eden. Little America and the letters props.

All the book is filled with many gorgeous never seen before images from the show and set, bringing life to a story that has been so beautifully on TV.
