The presentation of this artbook is similar to the earlier two books with the artworks still arranged in chronological order.
The book's filled with lots of character designs, just like the animation is populated with people. There are the main characters, the villains especially and the plenty of town people. Occasionally there are the Studio Ghibli inspired spirits and other creature designs.
There are quite a few storyboard sequences included. Some are the comedic scenes while most of them are action fight scenes. You may have seen some animated line art sequence of Korra online, well, one of them is in the book showing Korra doing a whirlwind kick. The art is amazing in simplicity and clarity. I just love the anime style art.
Also included are the many beautiful environment paintings and layout sketches.
The Avatar world is rich in detail and stories and once again the creators Bryan Konietzko, Michael Dante DiMartino and director Joaquim Dos Santos have provided insightful commentary that delve more into the characters and interesting story arcs.
This is a fantastic artbook. Highly recommended to fans who can't get enough of the animation.

Book Three: Change was my favorite season of Korra personally, so I'm really glad to have this book. Even though it hurts my wallet, I'm happy that each season of Korra has its own book so the show's art has maximum exposure and we can go in-depth into each episode of the series.
Like the other Art of Korra books, this one contains lots of background and environment paintings and plenty of character, outfit, object, and vehicle designs. There are also storyboards and key animation scattered throughout which are my favorite part! Each episode gets its own mini chapter with the art and design used in each episode and there is also the usual "Ancillary Art" section with extra doodles, promotional art, and other fun stuff. And of course, the book starts off with brief introductions from the season's three key figures: Mike, Bryan, and Joaqium.
Unfortunately for my copy, it looks like something heavy ended up on the lower left corner of the book, bending it slightly backwards so that the front cover is ripping off a little bit (I can see the binding) and the inner pages near the binding are also bent. I don't think it's damaged enough to cause the book to fall apart anytime soon, so rather than pay shipping to get it replaced, I just superglued the ripped parts down. It IS a book after all and the other 99% of each page is undamaged so why end up wasting the book? \ O~O / I did buy the book "New," though, so that was disappointing.
All in all I'd definitely go for this book on Amazon unless you want a pristine, brand spanking new copy, then I might check elsewhere but prepare to pay about $10 more.
I'm In love with you. Don't you see? You have bent all four elements into a love that I can not ignore. Thine heart aches for such an audacious woman! You can bend all of my elements any day.
