5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Art Book
Customer Video Review     Length:: 1:17 Mins
This is a nice art book for a delightful movie. The animated film was produced by Aardman Animations and Sony Pictures Animation. This is the first 3-D feature film for Aardman, who are better known for their stop-motion productions.

The book's a 160-page hardcover. I like the cover, in the picture there are so many little things that...

3.0 out of 5 stars good, but not excellent
The book gives a lot of information about the making of the movie. That's the good point about it. But there are to much computer animated pictures in the book. Being old school, I love the handmade drawings more then the, sometimes cool-looking, computer animated stills. But the movie is great!!

This review is from: The Art & Making of Arthur Christmas: An Inside Look at Behind-The-Scenes Artwork with Filmmaker Commentary (Hardcover)
Length:: 1:17 Mins

This is a nice art book for a delightful movie. The animated film was produced by Aardman Animations and Sony Pictures Animation. This is the first 3-D feature film for Aardman, who are better known for their stop-motion productions.

The book's a 160-page hardcover. I like the cover, in the picture there are so many little things that fill the room.

Inside, it's a mixture of film stills and concept art in the form of character designs sketches, storyboards, lighting studies, background art and others. The character designs are from Peter de Seve. Alexei Nechytaylo create the art for the props such as the badges and ranks of the elves, including the textures for costumes worn by the characters. The storyboards from Adam Cootes are beautiful and very expressive that I wish more were included. The book is filled with wonderful visuals.

There's plenty of writeup as well talking about the characters, design and certain scenes from the film. It's informative and interesting to read.

This is a beautiful art book, recommended to animation and art fans.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
