By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Oct. 30 2009
Format: Paperback
Length: 0:13 Mins
There's news that Tim Burton's coming up with an art book called The Art of Tim Burton. It's going to have 434 pages and should be released soon or early next month. This is not that book.

This book simply titled Tim Burton is an exhibition promotion book. It's published by The Museum of Modern Art to accompany the Tim Burton exhibition that's running on 22 Nov 2009 to 26 April 2010. The exhibition is going to have over 500 pieces of art created by Tim Burton himself.

In this book are only 64 pieces of art, and there are only 64 pages. You'll see coloured sketches, storyboards and sculpted models. It's a bit underwhelming but at least his creation and ideas are really cool to look at. Some of his work date back to the 80s when he's just starting out. Even then, his sense of design and artistic style is already established. There are also a few pieces of his personal work which are not related to movies.

For those interested in the story of Tim Burton, there are two essays of his inspiration and career, briefly looking through the different stages of his life.

I wish for a more detailed biography in the future. Tim Burton has created too many good movies and animation not to have one.

This little book should serve well as an exhibition guide, but will definitely leave the fans wanting more.

I highly recommend holding back the purchase of this book to see what The Art of Tim Burton has first.

This is not meant to be a biography or an extensive overview of Burton's film career. It is an exhibition catalogue and, as such, is very satisfying. Both essays are accessible and interesting and the range of images is compelling and inspiring. Sketches are so much more rewarding than finished works in that they reveal the process of getting there. Journeys are always better than destinations. A must for fans.

I expected to get more for my money. After paying over $20 I expected more than just two chapters on Tim Burton and then only 30 or so pages of his drawings. It's definitely interesting, but I wish there was more to it.

This book is full of sketches That really draw (no pun intended) you into his wonderfully twisted mind. I'm such a fan.
