They should have titled this 'The Storyboard Art of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' but that won't be accurate enough either.

This book is a graphic novel made of storyboards from the film. The hardcover is even sized like a normal trade paperback. The movement arrows remain in some storyboards. Storyboards are also cut up to fit into comic panel shapes you typically see. There are no speech bubbles but the whole story is narrated. The story isn't too bad, at least it's complete.

The art is rough as you can expect from a graphic novel. If you're an artist, maybe you can learn a thing or two about staging the scene.

Overall, this book is a like a weirdly mixed cocktail. It's more of a graphic novel than artbook that's for sure. I wish publishers and authors would stop putting "Art of" in book titles when they clearly are not artbooks.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

This book is not what it seems. The description suggest it will be one of those art books that goes into detail about the production of the movie, with behind the scenes photos, art design images, and the like. This is simply a graphic novel version of the movie using the storyboard art and conceptual designs as the graphic images. As a graphic novel it's an okay book, but it's not the kind of "Art Of XXXXXX" book that I was expecting. The price should have been a clue.

I usually order the "Art of <title>" books for movies that I really enjoyed. I was pleased to see this one come up for order.

This is not one of those books.

It's a graphic novel. Uniquely, this is a graphic novel that follows the movie (sort of), but is told from the POV of a character who is not featured (or even mentioned) in the movie. It also hints at a sequel, which I'm guessing will not be forthcoming, since the box office wasn't great for this movie.

So, once again I've been surprised by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. This is not the book story, and not the movie story. I can't wait to see which new story I stumble into next.

If you collect "Art of..." books, this will not be an addition to your collection. If you collect graphic novels, this might be right up your alley. It was difficult to rate this book, because it's not my thing, but I feel it succeeds at what it tries to be. Also: brief cartoon nudity, so be advised of that before you hand it off to a kid.

From the Amazon blurb:
"This deluxe edition contains never-before-seen storyboards, concept art, production illustrations, and costume designs, as well as drawings from visionary director Timur Bekmambetov. This behind-the-scenes glimpse into the creation of the hit film also features commentary by Bekmambetov, along with several others who helped bring this extraordinary film to life. Don't miss out on this rare, behind-the-scenes look into the creation of one of the most talked about new movies of the year, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter!"

It would appear that the publisher (or Amazon) didn't know what they were selling. Because the book described above would be awesome. I'd buy that book too.

Amazon's description is way off here and this is not your typical movie companion book. The description from the back cover: "This deluxe edition utilizes never-before-seen storyboards as well as exquisite pieces of production art and conceptual designs..." Uh-huh. Most of the book is full-color but roughly sketched storyboards snippets and nothing else - and rather skimpy at that. It sort of aims to retell the story like a graphic novel but it's not very good. I'm not sure that even aspiring storyboard artists would find this interesting. There are four actual photographs, all of the ax/gun, all too small to admire any details. The only interesting illustration was the final scene (not in the movie) about the assassination of Lincoln. In the original book, it is suggested that Lincoln is turned into a vampire after being shot to continue his work. What a missed opportunity for a gorgeous film!

As other reviewers have stated this is a graphic novel (despite the product description which apparently is from the publisher as this same description is used on other sites). There are a total of 8 pages, plus a title page, with "concept art, production illustrations, and costume designs" (as opening pages between chapters). These images are squeezed too many to a page to be of much use. And a shame, the concept art does look pretty cool. It is NOT a "behind-the-scenes glimpse" of the movie. The storyboard art itself is mediocre at best, and not really of any intrinsic value. This has been my humble opinion.
