"There's nothing quite like watching a Pixar film in a theater alongside hundreds of fellow moviegoers. But taking your time with a book like The Art of Pixar is an unexpected and essential adjunct to the experience. It's a path through the minds of the artists, and as a result, a look inside at the characters, scenes, sets, and environments that shape the many movies that together form Pixar's enviable collection" -CNET

"A must-have for animation and illustration fans. Author Amid Amidi of Cartoon Brew has a solid track record, and even for their lesser films, these Pixar Art Of books, usually devoted to a single film, are always brimming with wonderful art. What sets this particular book apart is that it spans the studio's entire catalog and reproduces each film's colour script - a series of lush, colourful preliminary paintings that are to the emotion of an animated film what storyboards are to the action." -Drawn
