As viewers, we do not get to see a thorough look at the behind-the-scenes process on Pixar films. Special features on Blu-ray/DVD releases and featurettes shared online give us but a glimpse of the years of work and thousands of pieces of artwork that are drafted up by those working on the film. The “Art of…” books for Pixar films shine a light on the concept art and other pieces of pre-production artwork, showcasing them on big glossy pages in a beautiful oversized hardcover. The art book for Monsters University is up next and its cover design was just updated with stunning new concept art, which you can see after the break!
Chronicle Books and Pixar have worked together for over a decade to deliver art books filled with gorgeous pre-production artwork created during the development of films from the animation powerhouse. Years are devoted to exploring ideas in art form at the studio, so getting a chance to take a peek at the behind-the-scenes process is often awe-inspiring. With Monsters University on deck for release this summer, that means another art book will be making its way to stores. Actually, The Art of Monsters University was recently listed for pre-order, giving us a look at the possible cover for the book. Take a look at it after the break!
