Excellent art book even if you haven't seen the movie.
Kevin Johnson
This is a really beautiful book with heaps of pre production drawings, pastel paintings, sketches and designs.

Just buy the book separately, which is exactly the same one that the simple edition almost ten times cheaper.

This is my fifth artbook from Pixar.

In typical Pixar artbook fashion, the pages are filled with concept drawings, visualizations and the thought process that went behind the production of Ratatouille. Through these pages, you'll come to a realization that their success is no fluke.

The creators travelled to France to research on the restaurants, food and the people. The effort and level of detail they put into the research can be clearly seen from the artwork from the book. The concept art and renders of the food in 3D made me imagine how they will taste if they were actually real.

You'll be able to see a lot of character designs for the humans as well as the rats. Sculpted models are also provided in photos. The storyboards, as you'll see plenty, are followed strictly in the movie. The compositions and lighting are the art form itself.

This book is filled with life and food, just like the movie. It makes for a perfect coffee table book.

First of all, if you are not interested in limited prints, do not spend your money in this edition. Just buy the book separately, which is exactly the same one that the simple edition almost ten times cheaper. You have to know you are going to pay for the limited autographed prints included in this Limited Edition. However, if you are crazy about this kind of things; you are a collector or an animation fan, do not hesitate: this is your edition! The book is inside a dark grey box and over it, there is another tray with a hand-written letter by the director, Brad Bird and the limited prints. They are really amazing due to the quality of the prints: strong colors, beautiful surface paper and moreover, they are signed by their authors! I would like to see in a close future Disney and Pixar book editions like this one to get them all.

I am a professional illustrator and own almost all of the "Art of" books from Disney and Pixar. This book ranks right up there with the best of them. If you were blown away by the creativity of the movie then you will not be disappointed with this book...beautifully illustrated...even a lot of stuff that never made it into the film.

I enjoyed this art book, and it's a great addition to my growing "Art of" library. There are plenty of illustrations and commentary in this book that with each pass through I notice something new. Like other Pixar art books there is lots of commentary from the creators of the movie that provide some neat insight. This isn't my favorite "Art of" Pixar book but overall I'm very happy with this book.

Originally when I bought this book I was expecting the character designs of the rats and the Humans, but also you will find here some concept art of the FOOD, and the first renders that Pixar made to see if was posible this project. Im not a big fan of the movie Ratatouille, but the book is just perfect.
