"That The Art of Frozen is a visual treat goes without
saying. There is the splendid art: the original sketches, concept
paintings, storyboards, backgrounds, maquettes, and finished art;
each piece identified to its artist. There are the photographs of
mid-19th century Norwegian architecture and costumes used for art
reference. There are the informative comments by the production
staff. But more than most art-of books, The Art of Frozen
describes the thinking that has made Frozen almost imperceptibly
different from all of the other modern animated features.
The Art of . movie books are usually for those who have seen the movie. The Art of Frozen is so insightful as to what makes a good animated theatrical feature that even if you have not seen Frozen...you should really study this book. Don't just read it; study it!"
