The art of Avatar Reviewed,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art of Avatar: James Cameron's Epic Adventure (Hardcover)
First of all, i have to say i was expecting this to be delievered around the 16th. I ordered it on the 10th of January, it then dispatched 11th and came today, the 13th, with the free delivery service, 3 days ahead. Well done Amazon!
Second the actual book. Just flicking through it, i found myself intrigued and awed at the creation of the movie. The art here reflects that of the film. The film wasn't soo much directed at the developement of the characters, more of the lush world of Pandora, and the book echoes this. What you see is the vibrance of the world painted by the artists.
What's more, the commentaries on it give a more indepth description and view concerning how the artists and Cameron came up with Avatar. If you liked the film, this is almost an essential.
-Vivid and lush pictures reflecting that of the film
-Commentaries giving indepth descriptions
-The sheer beauty of it
-Developement of the world
Bad (hardly matters, just picky#
-No 3D images to be seen with cinema 3D glasses #just wishes)
-Quite thin with character pictures and developement
-A good quantity of pictures, but could have some more
For any fan of Avatar, this is a superb book. If not a fan, it's still a good book. Recommend the soundtrack and Avatar: The field guide. 5/5
