Created to celebrate this notable anniversary, this 500-page hardcover book provides an in-depth look at the show, its history, and how it all comes together, with an illustrated breakdown of the cast and crew's 6-day week, over 2,300 images from the show's archives, a season-by-season reference guide, and an exclusive interview with creator Lorne Michaels.
