"in `The Art Of Incredibles 2', edited by Kaen Paik, we see how characters, environments, vehicles and outtakes were done or prepared. Which basically means design, storyboards and a lot of photos. There is more of that than footage from the film so it might be of less interest to your sprogs. If you are ever contemplating getting into the industry at any level then you need to see the amount of work that is done even before it gets animated. The attention to detail right down to the money they use, shows a lot of pre-planning and thought." -- SFcrowsnest "The Art Of Incredibles 2 is loaded with the kind of sketches, digital doodles and clay sculpts that you have come to expect from these tie-ins. It's an essential indulgence for anyone who wants to wallow in the world and explore the details that fly by far too quickly on-screen." -- Total Film "Animated features are nothing without their animators and designers and The Art Of Incredibles 2 is a well-edited and fascinating glimpse behind the curtains of Disney*Pixar's inventive sequel. Recommended for fans of the film, the characters or people with an interest in animation." -- Trip Wire Magazine
