This is an amazing book! I truly reccomend it to everyone interested in concept art and to Tangled fans. It is beautifuly published, filled with fantastic pictures, sketches etc. and the commentary is interesting. It is worth every penny :)show moreby Paula Augustyniak
My order of this book has finally arrived today. I wasn't expecting it to be this large, to be frank; so I was pleasantly surprised. The amount of concept art featured in its pages is quite overwhelming - plenty of sketches and concept art paintings (both traditional and digital) from Glen Keane and his team; as well as fascinating stories of how the movie came to be. You'll recognize the dynamic, cartoony style of the character design sheets - the same style you probably admired in books about "Aladdin" and "The Little Mermaid" - and you'll be glamored by the lovely background paintings. The paper quality is very fine and the images show no sign of pixelation or defects (like the VERY disappointing "Art of Avatar" book; which I luckily don't own, but had the "honor" of browsing through in a local book-shop). All in all, it's a gorgeous volume. I highly recommend it to all Disney / Tangled fans - whether you're into 3D and CGI or just prefer traditional hand-drawn 2D animation, trust me: you'll LOVE this book.show moreby Hoble Teodora-Ruxandra
