This book covers the design work that went into the film Planet 51, which If you haven't seen it before reading this you will probably want to afterwards. The Film is ok from a narrative point of view but visually it's a winner, the design and execution of the 3d and animation is superb throughout, easily up to Pixars high standards. This is all reflected in the book which goes into each characters design in detail. One thing all of these "Art of" books lack is any info about the 3D process, but that small gripe aside its superb.
