So beautiful!!! Normally I'm a bit iffy on Disney "The Art of" books simply because of the amount of white space I've seen in most of them, however this book is beyond GORGEOUS!!!! All of the space is use wonderfully, and there's so much character and charm to every page. There's a little bit of everyone within the entirety of it, and it's spoiler free!! You also receive a lot of the thought process behind each of the pieces of work, why they did certain things for what reasons, etc. It's a really wonderful art book in general. The designs are so clever, and it's aesthetically pleasing through and through. Definitely worth if you enjoyed the movie (or even if you didn't!)
I bought this book for my sister because we recently watched Big Hero 6 and we loved it. She is a graphic designer/illustrator so it was a great present!
Very good book
This book went above and beyond any expectations! And it's very helpful from a cosplayer's perspective.
