Editorial Reviews

The art in the book is, no surprise, gorgeous and informative. The concept art, storyboards, pastels, and digital paintings included show the love and care that the Pixar artists put into all aspects of their work. I also enjoyed the photography included with pictures taken during the team's research trips. Captions written by Bill Cone, Jay Schuster, and others throughout the book provide wonderful background information for many of the images. Also being a fan of automobiles in general, I particularly enjoyed seeing the design evolution of the Cars 3 characters. Not only is it an animation book, it's like looking at a great automotive design book, too."-Animation Fascination"With such a rich variety of visual material on display, including deleted and unused material, there's no need to pad the book out with film stills: hurrah! Plus there are full artist credits for every image used: double hurrah! Rating: 5 stars out of 5"-ImagineFX magazine"We enjoyed the book cover-to-cover and cannot recommend it enough. Between the great storyboard insights from Scott Morse (described in our video review) to the early concept artwork from the original version of the film? the book provides Cars fans a great background into the hard work and creation of the movie."-Pixar Post"This wonderful book details the incredible amount of work that goes into making films such as Cars - the illustrations are brilliant, the technical details superb." -Books Monthly"If you're a serious Cars fan, you'll love this book. If you love the sleek design of a race car, you'll love this book, too."-Disney Nerds"The Art of Cars 3 is the perfect companion to any fan of Pixar and the world of Cars, and just like the actual film, should leave you in wonder and amazement at the incredible work presented in front of you.
