The quality of the book is good too, it looks like a genuine notebook on the inside, with great posters and temporary tattoos included.

I love the fact that the book itself reads like a Giant scrapbook album where every time you turn the page you find something new.

This is truly a wonderful labor of love and it shows all thoughout the book. It is shock full of details, information and it even has details on every single fringe case file. I love the envelopes with classified documents, the loyalits tattoos are a great add on. This book is very well constructed, it is quite heavy and is printed in High quality paper, full of bright detailed photos some of which are unique to this book. My favorite is one of a much younger Walter and William Bell.

The book is divided into 5 distinct sections Over Here (Season 1 and Season 2), Over There (Season 3), Another Timeline (Season 4) and 2036 (Final Season). And each section has detailed information on the characters and events corresponding to that particular season. I love the fact that the book itself reads like a Giant scrapbook album where every time you turn the page you find something new. The pages themselves have Photos and revelant documents or information regarding that event, character or case, and in each page the blue notes are September's personal observations.

There 3 dossier one for the Redverse, one for the Blueverse and one for the Amber Timeline detailing every fringe case file that occurred in each one. At the end of the book there is a complete episode guide for all 5 season and some amazing artwork from Brown Betty and Lysergic Acid Diethylamide.

I do recommend this to any Fringe fan. It is a wonderful companion to the show whether you are a long time faithful fan or just finding out about the Bishops.

UPDATE: To everyone wondering why the envelope that was supposed to contained the white tulip is empty. This was done on purpose it is not a mistake.

This is an incredible book for all fans of Fringe. I'm one, and I'm thrilled by it.

It's put together and presented in beautiful scrapbook style. Included are insets, removable items, posters. The book edges have navigation tabs coming out like those you case files you normally see on TV. Full marks for presentation.

In terms of content, this book is packed with an amazing amount of information and pictures.

The book covers in detail both the universes and the other timeline. You have Walter's history, stories about Peter's illness that leads to the crossing of the universe, Cortexiphan Trails, Massive Dynamic and their secret projects, Fringe division and all their agents and the cases they have worked on. That's just for the original universe.

In the later sections of the book, it looks at all the differences between the universes and timelines. So you have Walter(nate) and all the Fringe doubles from the alternate universe.

There's a lot to read. It's a good recap as the events are presented in more linear and hence clearer. You'll also get some insight because September's observations can be found in little blue notes all over the book. These are stuff you don't get from just watching the show, and there are many other nuggets of information.

The pictures are great, and there are loads of them. There are the strange symbols from the opening credits, photos of the past Observers caught on camera, characters, news articles, graphics from the other universe, props, the time machine, gory pictures from cases, and more!

It's a pretty comprehensive companion to the show.

Highly recommended.

All Fringe fans should have this book.

UPDATE 7/29/13

What I have written below still stands for the regular edition. However, I have recently finally received the limited edition as well. It has been advertised as including a bookplate signed by Torv, Jackson, Noble, and Wyman, but upon examining mine, I noticed it looked identical to the one my friend received, as well as identical to pictures others had posted of theirs online. I contacted Insight Editions asking about it, and they confirmed that "some of the signature cards were generated with authorization by a replicating machine, for the actors could not sign all of them."

They didn't say how many cards had genuine signatures, but I'm guessing it's the 300 or so that was initially supposed to be published, before they expanded the run to 1300.

Otherwise, yes, the limited edition set is wonderful. But if you really care about the autographs, know that you'll probably receive fakes.

And I'm changing this to a one star review to reflect my dissatisfaction (to put it lightly) with Insight for never publicly announcing this change with the autographs. Given how expensive the set is, surely the autographs are one of the main selling points, yet the ones most will receive are worthless.


The book gives a beautiful first impression, with the appearance of a weathered cover, page dividers that look like file folders, and pages filled with bright pictures and commentary from September. Some pages have extra pictures or small sheets that are attached at their corners, so you can lift them up to see (most of) the rest of the page below, and there are folders with more case files and replicas to admire (my favorite was the Etta Resist poster).
