“Starry Night” meets a Hawkins night in this poster that features the “Stranger Things” kids, as seen through the lens of Vincent Van Gogh.

A New York Times best-seller, “Worlds Turned Upside Down” is the official behind-the-scenes companion guide to the show, with original commentary and a foreword from show creators Matt and Ross Duffer, behind-the-scenes photos from the set, and original sketches and concept art from the show’s costume and set designers.

The book also includes interviews with the stars of the show, and a rare glimpse into the casting calls that went out for their roles. Fans will also get to read the early episodes’ original drafts, and get answers to pressing questions about Hawkins, the Upside Down and the characters’ unique ticks and talents (I.e. finally crack the Morse code disk Eleven uses and learn how to decipher secret messages in the show).

Note: this book has been designed to mimic a used book (like the ones seen in the series). The marks, scuffs, and tears on the cover and pages are intentional. Purchase: $19.75 on Amazon.com.
