Item description for The Art and Making of Monster House by J. W. Rinzler, Robert Zemeckis & Gil Kenan...

As much a testament to the art of the book as the art of animation, The Art and Making of Monster House is presented in lavish four-color throughout, with highlights of some of the film's most astonishing features including 3-D art, gatefolds and die-cut overlays of the five stages of computer generated "motion capture" technology. It also includes envelopes, cards, and a movie poster.
Monster House is the first film from director Gil Kenan, who is living every young director's dream, hand-picked by the film's executive producer, Steven Spielberg, to create this groundbreaking film. This latest release from Sony Pictures Imageworks and ImageMovers, features the innovative, cutting-edge technology of " performance capture" animation, first introduced in The Polar Express.
Monster House tells the story of a trio of friends who discover the secret that a scary, creepy house in their neighborhood is actually a living, breathing monster and it's up to the kids to stop the evil house before it's too late. Standouts in the cast include animation veterans Steve Buscemi, Kathleen Turner, Catherine O'Hara and Jason Lee, as well as Fred Willard, Kevin James, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Jon Heder.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Art and Making of Monster House?

Scrapbook Goodness  Aug 6, 2008
This was the artbook that started all the scrapbook-styled artbooks. It's easily the best and it still is. Inside the book's cardboard cover was some really top quality dust jacket. It's comparable to movie posters and its glossy.

This book had 160 pages and was literally filled to the brim with tons of stuff. Inside were "collectible" cards, storyboards, small booklets, post-it notes and amazing beat boards. Numerous 2-page spread of the beat boards were breathtaking to look at.

Stocks do run out for artbooks, as I've realized, looking at older artbooks from this If you're into buying artbooks, you really don't want to miss this.

I've some pictures from the book on my blog. Just do an Internet search on "parka blogs monster house"
The Art of Monster House  Apr 14, 2008
This book is in good shape. For some reason I think that a page was missing, but I think I can do without the page. I like this book very much.
Awsome book  Oct 9, 2007
This book is like the awsome movie itself.
It has certain features you do not expect. Sometimes I could not determine at first sight if pictures were 2d or just real materials. Like the enveloppe,the playingcard holders and other "fearsome commodities". Wonderfull picturebook with well made drawings and photographs. Outstanding quality. It might have been found in the monsterhouse!

An amazing book!  May 20, 2007
This is how "art of" books really should be made. Lots of inserts, post-it notes and fun details. It looks almost like a scrapbook and is filled to the rim with drawings, renders, concept art and fun stuff. Very inspirational. It is just as great as the "Open Season" book which is also a must-have for all fans of animation.
monster house review  Apr 10, 2007
Love the book. A Priceless addition to an animation lovers dream book collection.
