Book Review: The Art of Pirates of the Caribbean

The Art of Pirates of the Caribbean

This is a humongous book. In one photo below, I've put my number-pad-less keyboard for comparison. The hardcover has a faux leather treatment and slightly spongy to make it feel like an ancient book. The paper stock is thick and there are several fold out pages.

This book contains concept art for the 3 movies for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man's Chest and At World's End.

There are sketches, paintings and some storyboards. The focus of the book is on set and character design. The concept paintings have so much detail that will be lost if not printed on a book this size. To zoom in even closer on the paintings, there's where the fold out pages come into play. The portraits for Captain Barbossa and his decomposed skeletal crew are draw at life size!

There are also numerous paintings for the ships, creatures, harbour and the seas.

Fans of Pirates of the Caribbean should find this book very interesting. Character designers too.

This book is very lovely!

This book is very lovely! However, my copy has 4 duplicated pages starting at pg.81. It is a gatefold which may have been glued on twice. Parka is yours duplicated as well or is it just my copy?
