Published to accompany a major career retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art, this book considers Burton's career as an artist and filmmaker. It narrates the evolution of his creative practices, following the current of his visual imagination from his earliest childhood drawings through his mature oeuvre. Illustrated with works on paper, moving-image stills, drawn and painted concept art, puppets and maquettes, storyboards, and examples of his work as a graphic artist, this book sheds new light on Burton and presents previously unseen works from the artist's personal archive. Includes 64 color illustrations.
Oh how I love Tim Burton. Ok, sometimes his movies aren't quite as awesome as I'd like them to be, but as far as a visual artist, he's right up my alley. I love the dark, macabre worlds he creates. MoMA in New York is having a retrospective running from Nov 22 2009-April 26, 2010. This is the book that accompanies the exhibition, so even if you can't make it to the museum, you've gotta snag the book!
