Looking through the art in this book, one would not have guessed that Disney actually decided to phase out traditional animation in 2004. The Princess and the Frog essentially marks a comeback, a representation of what Disney used to be. That's good news for all fans of traditional animation.

The Art of The Princess and the Frog is filled character designs, background art and storyboards. The art is unmistakeably Disney-style -- the caricature style of characters, stylized set designs and lush colours. The story is set in New Orleans and there are plenty of background paintings in different moods. The characters are lively and backgrounds beautiful.

The team of contributing artists is impressive. There are new artists as well as familiar names. It's impossible to name all but those whose name keep appearing are Rik Maki, Armand Baltazar, Bill Schwab, James Aaron Finch (production designer), Ian Gooding (art director), Sue Nichols, Mark Henn, Chris Appelhans, Kevin Gollaher and many more.

The artists and staff contribute numerous interesting quotes. They talk about the creative process, characters, the set and a bit on the story. There are stuff like what they did or where they went for research, inspiration and influence from older classic animated films. All interesting and insightful to read.

This book a refreshing and welcome look back at traditional art, after being exposed to so much digital animation. Old school still has its distinct charm.

I won't repeat the positive things that other people have mentioned, and only add that I particularly enjoyed the storyboards, color scripts, and color keys. There are definitely other Art of titles that I enjoy more, but if you are a collector of the Art of books then there is no question that you should pick this one up. You won't be disappointed.

While the book makes no mention of Tiana when she was "Maddie" (something I was expecting to see) I wasn't disappointed at all! The various designs and concepts, the samples of story boards, even seeing how they used both traditional and digital mediums to bring this story to life. My favorite part is seeing all the back ground art and the use of color and lighting in them. I'd also suggest that those who thought this movie was complete a bust to take at this book and see all the T.L.C. that went into, if not the whole film, at the very least the animation and artwork!
