5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite of the three volumes Dec 13 2010
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Length: 1:24 Mins
Of the three books from The Archive Series, this is my favourite. It covers design or the concept art for animated films.

This 256-page hardcover is filled with beautiful character designs, background paintings and storyboards. There are Mary Blair's paintings, wonderful layouts from Hans Bacher, the Lilo and Stitch drawings from Chris Sanders, pastel colour scripts from Bolt animated films and more. The art here is way more colourful than the previous two volumes on Story and Animation.

There is work dating back to the 1920s up to the latest animated films like The Princess and the Frog, and even Tangled. You will be able to see how the art has evolved with time, and the various Disney artists that have worked there and some are still working there now. There are so many styles to look at, from pencil animated characters to watercolour scenes to oil paintings.

If you have other Disney art books, some pieces of work are actually repeated, but about one fifth of the them are published here for the first time. Even so, this is a wonderful collection to get. And if you have to get only one volume out of The Archive Series, I'll recommend this volume.

This is a beautiful and inspiring collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! Nov. 27 2010
By J. Ferguson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Walt Disney Archive Series has already set the bar quite high with the first two entries in this series - Story and Animation. However, the release of Design sets new levels when it comes to quality, content and presentation. This book is packed with beautiful preproduction and design art that includes watercolors, drawings, sketches, color studies, and digital paintings. Some of Eyvind Earle's paintings for Sleeping Beauty are included as well as Chris Sander's storybook inspirational art for Lilo and Stitch. There are character design sketches for the Beast and Gaston by Glen Keane and Andreas Deja. There's several pages covering the Black Cauldron which features two inspirational paintings by James Coleman as well as character sketches by Tim Burton, and there's much, much more. Though I've collected most of the "art of" books from Disney, I haven't seen many of the works displayed in this book.

While the first two books were amazing, what's great about Design is that in most of the artwork, all of the elements of character, color, design and background are coming together. It's almost like flipping through a lavishly illustrated children's book of many different styles and viewpoints. One could frame much of the work shown in this book and be quite pleased with them hanging on your wall. It really is a terrific book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Book but Amazon Can't Package Dec 1 2010
By Anthony - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I love this book, everything about it is wonderful it is a must have but don't buy it from amazon.com. Mine arrived in an oversized box with no internal packaging and so was wonderfully damaged. If this was a one off event or if it were an accident I could forgive them but this is just laziness and it is most definitely NOT the first time they have pulled a stunt like this. Buy this book and love every page but order it from your local book store so you can pick it up and have an undamaged one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Content; Mediocre Craftsmanship Jan. 31 2011
By Buster B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has absolutely wonderful content, but the interior seems of inferior printing craftsmanship than the previous two editions. I realize some people think that's just a subjective impression, but I think anyone who buys, collects, handles, or prints books knows the difference. I wouldn't let that stop me from purchasing this book, however, because the cover is just as nice, and the content, as I already mentioned, is wonderful.
Part of what makes this series great is the attempt at minimizing overlapping material from other books. Yes, about half of the material can be had in other books, but those are usually pieces that are so associated with certain films that a book would almost seem incomplete with out them. But just being able to view the "new" material would be worth the price of the book. There are Snow White concept images that I've never ever seen before, as well as other surprises that will delight the Disney art fan.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Beautiful book....it is a gift for my daughter who already has the first two of the series....but it's condition upon arrival is disappointing...no invoice, the bubble wrap was ripped, and the book has creases and fingerprints in the margins. Others have complained of similar fates.....just to be aware.
