Format: Hardcover
Right away you notice the size of the book (each page is roughly A3 in size) and how good the quality of the print is. There's a print of a pencil sketch of The Beast, from Beauty and the Beast, spread over two pages and when I pressed down on the spine of the book to get a better look, I found my hand had lifted up in the air for fear of smudging the image in a jerk reaction.

The layout of the book is also interesting. It's made up like a full sketchbook would be. The images almost seem randomly placed and the only text is in the form of a foreword, introduction and notes which accompany a few character designs.

The introduction mentions that they wanted to create a sketchbook you would think had been handed down over the years, from animator to animator, and they have done exceptionally well in achieving this. You just feel like you're getting a rare insight to the inner workings of the master animators as you go from sketch to sketch.

I could also mention the personality, weight etc put into each drawing but I think it would be defeating the point of the book as you should really see it for yourself.

A Disney Sketchbook is a large book that contains very little text, but some of the best drawings I have ever seen. The range of drawings covering the breadth of the Disney catalogue is outstanding.
The beauty of the book is the simplicity of the drawings, they are all grey pencil drawings and have been left in a very raw state.

As an animator I have been waiting for this book for quite a while and when it finally was announced that it was coming out I eagerly bought it and was not disappointed. I would go so far to say that every animator worth their salt should have this book in their collection. The drawings are gorgeous and every time i look at the sketches inside, I can see something new in the way they've been drawn. It is a truly inspiring collection. Even if you are not an animator, but enjoy watching the Disney films, I heartily recommend getting this book, just so you can get an inkling of the talent and skill that comes in making these kind of films.

My favourite art book so far!!
I purchased this book as I am an animation student who loves Disney and the art style they produce. I was blown away by the artwork inside! The book has beautiful, initial concept designs spread across A3 sized pages. It is actually like a real sketchbook! The pages are the thick, textured paper that you usually find in high quality sketch pads and the pictures are printed in their original pencil/ink onto the pages. This looks so amazing that you almost feel that you would smudge them if you touched them.

My best, favourite and go-to book of all time! If you're an artist/student/just interested in Disney art - BUY THIS BOOK YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

This book is beautiful, my father in law has been to Disneyworld in California and Florida many times over the years he absolutely loves Walt Disney, he has a vast collection of Disney figurines and memorabilia including collectors pieces so he was delighted when he received this book as a present on Christmas day .

The book is absolutely amazing, there is a full range of pictures from Mickey mouse to tangled and there are drawings of Disneys first idea of how characters looked like and how they are now. Well worth the money and would recommend to anyone who loves disney.
