It’s hard to believe, but Saturday Night Live is now 40 years old. And despite the last year or two being pretty rough, no one can deny the asteroid-like impact Lorne Michaels and crew have had on comedy and pop culture. It’s an American icon.

To celebrate, Saturday Night Live: The Complete History goes crazy deep into SNL lore, with 500 pages of all things SNL, including some 2,300 images from SNL’s archives, many previously unpublished. There’s a reference guide for each season, with complete cast, host, and musical guest lists, and editor and author Alison Castle provides an illustrated breakdown of the 6-day week at SNL through the years, with an expanded section for the live show. Come on, doesn’t your coffee table deserve more cowbell? [Purchase]
