Wow has it been 40 years since Saturday Night Live premiered on late night NBC television. Amazing. We love SNL. It is a Saturday night tradition for us. We have been watching since the beginning show on October 11, 1975.

Taschen the art book publisher has published the ultimate tribute to the show, Saturday Night Live: The Book. Author Alison Castle was given not only full access to SNL’s archives, but also the rare opportunity to watch the cast and crew at work. She spent the better part of Season 39 in the trenches, learning how everything comes together in just six days for the live performance. Part encyclopedia and part behind-the-scenes tour, Saturday Night Live: The Book covers both the making of the show and its remarkable history.

Features include:

  • Over 2,300 images from SNL‘s archives, many previously unpublished
  • An illustrated breakdown of the 6-day week at SNL through the years, with an expanded section for the live show
  • Seasons reference guide with complete cast, host, and musical guest lists
  • Exclusive interview with founder and executive producer Lorne Michaels
