By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 12 2009
Format: Hardcover
There's a lot of different artistic style in the book. When Brad Bird came to Pixar, he brought with him his team of artists, those that had worked with him on The Iron Giant.

Each artist produced concept art using different materials and style. There are collage, gouache, digital, marker, acrylic and pastel. Each drawing generates ideas and inspiration. You'll have no idea the movie was created for art so varied. There are no rendered stills from the movie.

The book touches mainly on character design and artistic direction of the movie.

If you want the process of creating The Incredibles, you'll want to grab the DVD instead. There are pretty comprehensive behind the scenes included in the DVD.

There are more pictures on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

A Feast of colour and style !!! Oct. 14 2004
By Antonios Glikos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I just recieved my copy of this 3rd Pixar-Art-Book in the series (The Art of Monsters Inc and the Art of Finding Nemo were also designed to the same style and dimentions) and Im more than happy!!!

Again there are tons of conceptual drawings, collages and pencil-sketches. Litterally an explosion of colours and talent! The text takes only a small part of the book which is great cause all of us want to see the conceptual artwork (we can always learn tons of info and trivia when the Special DVD set will be out).

Looking at the countless colour studies, again it is Mary Blair that sparkles behind them. It is so touching to see that this new generation of artists, that work with the latest digital technology have so much education and have studied the work of Mary Blair in such a depth that that to anyone who loves her work it almost feels like a Tribute to her amazing sense of colour and design (just check the drawing of the island and you'll see how similar is to the Neverland island of Peter Pan).

Personally I feel that this book is a necesary companion to the movie! All these treasures of the early conceptual drawings reveal another angle of Pixar, a more delicate and sofisticate side, that with the final digital artwork it can't be visible...

Congratulations to this fantastic team of artists and to their boss who give them the Freedom and the time to create all this awesome inspirational artwork!!!

I never saw something similar since Walt Disney left this planet.

The bookbinding is perfect (the Incredibles Logo is embosed to the front cover under the dust-jacket) and the printing is bright and great! A real 5-star artbook!!!

Somewhat disappointing June 30 2008
By AnimationGeek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The Incredibles remains my favorite Pixar film to date. I was very excited to read this book and I very much looked forward to seeing the progression from rough ideas to finished product.

Sadly, this was not what the book delivered.

The art in the book is rough and garish. The few development drawings and maquettes that are included are overshadowed by the gaudy, cut-paper collage versions of the characters that are featured on almost every page. Of all the artists that worked on this film, only a paltry few were chosen to have their work featured in this title and after a few pages the "sameness" of the chosen work dulled any enthusiasm I might have had for it.

I must also agree that the art strikes me as very early pre-production work as it has very little visual relation to what wound up on the screen. There is almost no development or evolution of the characters or sets shown and little to no mention of how these rough versions became the final polished movie. It seems to me to be an illustration of one single moment in the movie's development rather than a comprehensive look at all the art and creativity that went into the film. And a rushed one at that.

This is an interesting coffee-table book, certainly something avid collectors would want in their library. But for those of us looking for an insight into the vast process of creative development in such a wonderful movie . . . I'm afraid we will have to look elsewhere.

Lots and lots of fun Dec 4 2004
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
_The Art of The Incredibles_ is a lot of fun, it's even more fun after you've seen the movie and can read this book to learn about how they did what they did and why they made the artistic choices they made. The descriptions of the creative process and the drawings showing the evolutions of the concepts and characters in the movie are fascinating and often amusing (such as the various conceptions of the character of Edna Mode). If you're a fan of the movie you'll really love this book.

Disappointing May 21 2013
By Amio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar movies so I was excited to look through the art book. Overall it's pretty mediocre. Most of the character designs shared are very early sketches and designs while most of the book concentrates on the different settings and walls of text. I was tired of looking at drawings of rooms and buildings by the end. I was hoping to see more later-on sketches and designs of all the characters, especially some of the one-off characters that we only saw in quick pictures or flashbacks, but there was not much. There are a few gems in the book, but you have to dig for them.

Overall, I'm not satisfied with this book. It could have been so much better.
