I really do want “The Art of Tim Burton” (and the deluxe edition which has his signature, too) but I guess I will resume dreaming of it, because I haven’t got money :D
The deluxe edition’s description:
“For the first time ever a comprehensive look at the personal and project artwork of Tim Burton.
Hardcover with cloth slipcase.
Hand signed inside cover.
Includes numbered and individually signed lithograph – ready for framing, not folded.
Over 1000 illustrations and 430 pages plus foldouts.”
And the description of the book is:
“The Art of Tim Burton is the definitive compilation of forty years of Tim Burton’s artistry, including film concepts and hundreds of illustrations from his personal archives, edited under the creative guidance of Burton himself. This comprehensive 434 page book is grouped into thirteen chapters that examine common themes in Burton’s work, from his fascination with clowns to his passion for misunderstood monsters, to his delight in the oddities of people. Many of Burton’s friends and collaborators offer their thoughts, insights and anecdotes about Tim Burton’s style and artistic approach to life.
Artwork from the following films and projects are included in this book: Alice in Wonderland (2010), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Corpse Bride (both 2005), Big Fish (2003), Planet of the Apes (2001), Sleepy Hollow, (1999), Mars Attacks!
