There are 176 pages, 16 more pages that previous Pixar art books. You'll see new toys, colour scripts, storyboards, sculptures, sketches and some photographs. Some pieces of art from Toy Story 2 were also included. Many pieces of art are digitally created, which is how it's done these days. It doesn't take away anything though, the art is still good. Colour studies from Dice Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo are beautiful, just like the one on the cover. And so are all the art from other artists.
The writeup is marvelous. There so much more to read compared to previous Pixar art books. I can see Author Charles Soloman has talked to a lot of people and done some good research. The commentary is filled with lots of quotes from the staff, interesting stories and insight into Toy Story. You'll read about the legacy of Toy Story, the updates to this movie, story sequences, the characters and other details right down to how Andy's neighbour decorates his lawn.
For the most part, the commentary is really about the plot and the characters. Nuances and deliberations to every story decisions are explained. Many of the ideas translated to screen are actually from personal life experiences. This film is clearly a piece of love for everyone who worked on it and you'll feel that love and level of commitment on every page you read.
I'm pretty sure this is going to be one of Pixar's most touching film to date.
Highly recommended. It's a great book for all Pixar fans.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
This is a really high quality book with an incredible amount of art and detail that really wraps up the film and the series as a whole. Well worth the full price (let alone the discounted £15 here) for Toy Story and Pixar fans or just art lovers. Highly recommended!

Being an animated movie, there was nothing "filmed" - that means that every single thing you see in the frame (and I mean every little detail in the background) was intentionally created by the film's artists and animators. Pixar is known for their quality, and it shows here. Looking through the book, you can see the great level of care and detail that the artists put into each character, location, and object.
Includes the following:
- Sample of the film's Color Script
- Andy's house/room
- Sketches & Design of key characters (Lotso, Barbie & Ken, etc)
- Sunnyside Daycare - environment & toy designs
- Final CG renders of main characters
