The Art of Kubo and the Two Strings

 


The Art of Kubo and the Two Strings is a wonderful art book if you like set design, layout, and background artwork.  As for character designs there is too few and far between.  The book contains 160 pages, and about 1/10 of those pages has drawings of the characters and most of them are of the final designs of each character. Rather than show lots of drawings of them creating and experimenting with the designs which most artists love to see.  The book has lots of artwork, but I was really sad to see such little attention to the characters and an overload of attention to set design, layout, props, and background paintings. 


I give it 2.5 out of 5
