Fraggle Rock: The Ultimate Visual History is an upcoming 224-page hardcover book about the making of Fraggle Rock written by Joody Revenson and Noel Murray, and featuring a foreword written by Neil Patrick Harris.
Some content from the book was originally intended to have been released by Insight Editions as early as 2008 as a part of the 160-page Down at Fraggle Rock: Lost Treasures from the Jim Henson Archives by Jocelyn Stevenson (a book that was delayed multiple times and subsequently shelved by 2016 following a failed tie-in with the show's 30th anniversary).
