Product description

Since its debut in 2005, "Avatar: The Last Airbender" has remained one of Nickelodeon's most talked about and highest-rated animated series to date, and it's not too hard to see why... Not only does it offer an epic storyline, engaging characters, action, adventure, and a powerful message about the importance of hope in a world long-besieged by war, all the while serving up top-notch entertainment. It's also beautifully executed, a stunning masterpiece of animated storytelling that harmonizes Western influences with aesthetic inspiration drawn from a diverse array of cultures, including those of China, Japan, India, and the Inuit. An unprecedented look at the concept, design, and production art behind this smash-hit series, "Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Art of the Animated Series" chronicles the show's development -- from the very first sketch through to the series finale and beyond! -- along with behind-the-scenes commentary from series creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino. * Featuring hundreds of images, most of which Nickelodeon has never released to the public!

Adored the series and did not expect the excellent quality of this book. This is definitely a purchase that must be made by every Avatar fan out there. A great insight to behind the scenes, commentary by Bryan and Michael, and the art is superb. Great length and numerous sketches, images and even has post it scribbles from the art department during their meetings. The book flows nicely as it starts from the beginning of the series to the end. I absolutely love this book and would recommend it.

This book is an amazing, high quality product with rich illustrations which gives an in-depth insight into the production of this series. The book is structured really well with text following narratives from each of the two main creators. It is mainly illustrations but these are well annotated and explained. If you were a fan of the show and want to see how the characters and plot were developed and see some beautiful illustrations of the settings in the series then buy this! I was not let down at all :D
