The first official tie-in book for the blockbuster series Peaky Blinders--the epic gangster drama set in the lawless streets of post-World War I Birmingham--is every bit as dramatic, stylish, and atmospheric as the show.

Peaky Blinders is a binge-worthy hit that never ceases to entertain. Produced by Steven Knight, Caryn Mandabach Productions, and Tiger Aspect Productions and shown on Netflix in the US, it inspires a cult-like devotion in its viewers--from teenagers emulating the show's hairstyles to discerning consumers of quality drama. This stylish volume invites fans to step onto the set and discover the real-life inspiration for the series; explore its key themes, characters, and plotlines; and learn more about the actors, creative teams, and soundtracks that have made it a worldwide phenomenon. Containing exclusive imagery, in-depth interviews with and essays by the creators and cast--including Steven Knight, Cillian Murphy, and Helen McCrory--and an inside look at everything from the drama's moody sets to its influential fashions, By Order of the Peaky Blinders is an essential companion.
