"A great look into the making of the film." --Top Hat Sasquatch

"Nearly every image has a lush, painterly aesthetic that s difficult to not admire." --Shockya review

"At once foreboding and cosy, it s a marvellous creation, thanks mostly to a close following of illustrator Neil Ross monolithic 'shape language'." --ImagineFX

'The Art and Making of Hotel Transylvania' is an illustrated delight, worthy of any animation fan s collection." --Rotoscopers review

'The Art and Making of Hotel Transylvania' is a lavishly produced tome that breaks down the finer details of what s behind the making of a quality animated feature." --Cute Monster review

"The writing, by Tracey Miller-Zarneke, is clever and engaging and the aforementioned artwork, provided by more than a dozen animators, is amazing." --Into the Dark

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Length: 1:08 Mins
This is a wonderful artbook filled with beautiful concept art. All 160 pages.

When I first saw the movie trailer, I was really tickled by the monsters. Hotel Transylvania has certainly given not just a new life but also new looks to classic horror monsters.

Majority of art are on the characters. The character designs are funny. Monsters that used to be scary now look comical. The fat Mummy, Werewolf in a shirt with short tie and a hydra with six dog heads are among the many monsters living in that resort hotel.

It's amusing looking at the monsters and reading their stories. Each character comes with many cool variations. Kudos to Carter Goodrich, Annette Marnat, Carlos Grangel and other character designers for the wacky monsters.

Much of the production design are of the castle interiors and props. Different areas and rooms are showed, like the library, kitchen, spa and steam rooms, etc. It It's enjoyable looking at the details that went into the furnishings to make this a cozy hotel.

This is one of my favourite artbooks for 2012.

Highly recommended to art and animation fans.

I just love love love this book, as a massive fan of the film I was delighted to find it and it was everything I thought it would be. Beautifully presented, it almost makes you not want to open it for fear of something happening to it. Inside you'll find the artwork to the film is amazing, it really gives an insight into how each character came to the final design after various ideas by fantastic artists. I just wish I could have the same ideas!

I can't recommend this book enough and it is also amazing value for money - thank you!!

I like this book a lot because it has many images in all sizes and interesting material to go with it the only reason i don't really really like this book is because i would personally prefer to see more full page images of landscape and structure and backgrounds than of characters.

As an animation student there is a load of amazing and inspirational art to learn from, but the book is just as suitable for all the collectors out there.
