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.
