These days I prefer most things in digital form, but the art book is one area where the physical form has significant advantages.

This paperback version is THICK and relatively large, but the real kicker is the print quality which is superb. You can really study the pencils/inks/colors of Mr Timm's work in great detail.

I will be revisiting this book many times in the near future. If you're on the fence about this purchase, I would recommend picking this up before it goes out of print. The initial run was sold out and prices rocketed to close to triple the cover price. As of this writing, Amazon has it back in stock for twenty dollars less than the cover price (fifty). This price won't last long. This looks like an expensive book to print so there is no chance they are overprinting this sucker.

That said, this book is actually well worth triple figures. I'm such a fan that I'm going to try to track down the hardcover edition which is even more expensive. An impressively gorgeous collection of work.

Massive oversize coffeetable book filled to the brim with gorgeous art. From rough sketches to markers to full paints, every page is a masterpiece. I am a massive Timm fan and this book blew my mind. It is worth every penny. The book is a little light on text, with no actual input from Timm himself, yet I couldn't bring myself to care, the art is so good. Heavy on the nudes but with a PG DC section, along with a horror/pulp section heavy on the Hammer films. Get the Bruce Timm Modern Masters from Twomorrows as a companion piece.

I ordered the signed and numbered hardcover directly from the publisher and I was very pleased with the book. It's an oversized hardcover with a slipcase (similar to DC's "Absolute" volumes). The book is mostly nudes in Timm's signature style, but there is a good amount of variety. DC girls Batgirl, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Batwoman, Supergirl and Poison Ivy make sexy but PG-rated appearances. There are also a few illustrations of the vampire women and monsters of Hammer films. This is a thick tome with one piece to a page, so you'll definitely get your fill of Timm "good girl" art. Highly recommended!

I knew this book was going to be jam packed, but seeing the physical thing far exceeded my expectations. It's a big book. A big, heavy book. And nearly each individual page is dedicated entirely to a piece of work. I love it! If you are a fan of Bruce Timm, do not let this one go!

I have liked the Bruce Timm style of art ever since watching Batman the animated series nearly 20 years ago. This book is awesome to say the least. Even though it's a soft cover book, it feels very solid and printed on heavy paper. The content? purely beautiful works of art.

For anyone who has seen Bruce Timm's character designs ( Batman, Justice League, Superman ... etc ) you will note a difference in the coloring style. While you're used to seeing these designs and characters in very cartoonish vibrant colors. The work in the book itself is different in that way as the characters are painted with more realistic shades of color, lights and shadows. It's a great book for anyone who is a fan of Bruce Timm's style of art.

I'm a huge Bruce Timm. This is a great collection of female figure drawings. Though his medium and genre change from chapter to chapter, they all retain that classic Bruce Timm style I love so much.

Oh yes, I should mention, the book is broken up into different "chapters" So you have some fantasy, superhero(ine), noir, etc, all organized in to different collections.

The book itself is attractive. Printed on thick, heavy glossy paper. It just... it feels nice in your hands, if that makes any difference to you.

What a triumph! This book is filled with vixens in Timm's signature style. Some dynamic, some action but all amazing. It's slightly oversized and quite long with a girl per page, for the most part. This tome is light on text and even lighter on his background, which would have been nice, but it's available elsewhere. (See Modern Masters.) There are maybe a half dozen to a dozen pages showing pencils and the subsequent paint.

Would I have loved more process? Of course, but Timm gave us this and we should all be grateful. Timm takes the pinup and owns it completely.
