The Art of Toy Story 3 Cover Art and Content Revealed!

Toy Story news is coming at us back-to-back this weekend, especially news that has to do with books and pre-orders, but I’m not complaining!

One of my favorite Pixar tie-in products is The Art of… series from Chronicle Books, so I was extremely excited to see The Art of Toy Story 3 available for pre-order today! The book has been through quite a bit of drama since the unexpected author change during mid-production but it’s clearly back up and steady. Fortunately, animation historian Charles Solomon (credited with related pieces in The New York Times and Rolling Stone) currently seems to have a great handle on this edition.

For one, the cover art (seen here, click to view larger) is stunning but what’s even more fantastic is the content promised inside this 176-page coffee table book. The Art of Toy Story 3 takes you into the world of Pixar’s latest production with 250 pieces of original artwork, a "gatefold of Toy Story 3 color scripts" and a look back at the art of Toy Story and Toy Story 2! Also including a foreword by director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson with a preface by John Lasseter, this book is shaping up to be a definite must have!

The "deluxe volume" will be released on May 26th, 2010 from the excellent folks over at Chronicle. You can pre-order your copy over at bumped down from the usual price of $40 to a reduced $26.40, an amazing value!

What are you most excited to see in The Art of Toy Story 3?

    WOW! Look at this, there’s going to be a book all about Joe Grant and Joe Ranft coming out August 3, 2010.

    Looks like another must-have for Pixar fanatics!

    Yes…but sadly, it’s “written” by john canemaker, who’s not a very good writer. His writing is sloppy and the research is very minimal. Everything he’s written about is covered better elsewhere, and his writing style is pithy and VERY snobby.

    Didn’t John Canemaker also write “The Art and Flair of Mary Blair”? I haven’t gotten a chance to look through it yet but it’s something I’ve been wanting to buy. It sounds like a very good book, both The Art of Toy Story 3 and the Joe Grant/Ranft book. 😉
