Win a copy of The Art of Pixar: 25th Anniv.: The Complete Color Scripts and Select Art from 25 Years of Animation

UPDATE: JMichael won and has been contacted.



Good news, I have a copy of The Art of Pixar: 25th Anniv.: The Complete Color Scripts and Select Art from 25 Years of Animation by Amid Amidi to give away:

Over the past 25 years, Pixar's team of artists, writers, and directors have shaped the world of contemporary animation with their feature films and shorts. From classics such as Toy Story and A Bug s Life to recent masterpieces such as Up, Toy Story 3, and Cars 2, this comprehensive collection offers a behind-the-scenes tour of every Pixar film to date. Featuring a foreword by Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter, the complete color scripts for every film published in full for the first time as well as stunning visual development art, The Art of Pixar is a treasure trove of rare artwork and an essential addition to the library of animation fans and Pixar enthusiasts.
You can see lots of photos here, and the book is 38% off at Amazon.

I have one copy to give away. For a chance to win, simply comment on this post and include your email so I can contact you if you win. I'll pick a winner next Thursday evening. I apologize, but this giveaway is limited to USA residents. (But I do have other contests and giveaways right now.)

  17. The first movie that my wife allowed our kids to see in the theater was Up; after the wordless story of Karl and Ellie's life together, my then six year old daughter asked me why I was crying. All I could tell her was that their story was sad. I'd love to be able to share this book with her.

  46. I think art books with the concept and inproduction roughs are the best thing ever. There should be some sort of studio rule about everyone saving every damn thing so it can be put in art books. Doesn't matter if it sucks, it's part of the process.
    Only downside is when people go "The concept here was totally more interesting"

    Having found Super Punch going through the archives is my favorite at work activity.
