Interactive 'Breaking Bad' digital book out today

Posted on

Hank discovered some pretty scintillating reading material in Walt’s bathroom in the last episode of Breaking Bad that aired, and now Breaking Bad wants to provide the same for you.

The show’s studio, Sony, has partnered with the producers of AMC’s beloved drug drama to create Breaking Bad: Alchemy, the official digital multi-touch companion book. The book features more than 100 pages of original content and 350-plus interactive elements, including interviews with series creator Vince Gilligan and other producers, a guide to the chemicals referenced on the series, an interactive timeline of which characters have met their demise over the last five seasons, and blueprints and 3-D models of sets. Check out a sample below:

As each of the final eight episodes air, the $7.99 book — which can be purchased exclusively on the iBookstore starting today — will update with materials related to those installments. (Guessing that death timeline might see some healthy action during this final run.)

Breaking Bad returns to AMC for the second half of its fifth and final season on Aug. 11.
