HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWERon February 12, 2009
This is my fifth artbook from Pixar.

In typical Pixar artbook fashion, the pages are filled with concept drawings, visualizations and the thought process that went behind the production of Ratatouille. Through these pages, you'll come to a realization that their success is no fluke.

The creators travelled to France to research on the restaurants, food and the people. The effort and level of detail they put into the research can be clearly seen from the artwork from the book. The concept art and renders of the food in 3D made me imagine how they will taste if they were actually real.

You'll be able to see a lot of character designs for the humans as well as the rats. Sculpted models are also provided in photos. The storyboards, as you'll see plenty, are followed strictly in the movie. The compositions and lighting are the art form itself.

This book is filled with life and food, just like the movie. It makes for a perfect coffee table book.

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

As I am a huge fan of concept art in general, I never not like these books. A beautiful 160 page collection of the thought process and creation of years of hard work. I think sketching and concept art have a looseness to them that you do not see sometimes in Production art. I think there is a lot more energy and freedom to hash out several ideas at once. I enjoy that. I will continue to pick up these types of books in the future, and I suggest, if you are at all interested in conceptual art, you do the same.

Interesting to see the development of the characters and the sets. So much work goes into creating a feature animation film.

Great book for my collection. Not enough sketches in there for my liking but still great.
