Book Review: Steven Universe: Art & Origins

Steven Universe: Art & Origins - 01


By the time I wrote this review, there were already 91, mostly favourable, reviews on Amazon. Well, what can you say? Steven Universe is a very popular show. The last time I saw so many reviews submitted in such a short amount of time were for the books The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia and Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo, also a book published by Abrams.

This book is features the art and making of the Cartoon Network original. Fans of the show will definitely love this book because it's filled to the brim with how the show was brought to live, complete with all the artworks for characters, backgrounds and anything that had to be designed.

Highlight of the book is the amount of insight provided by the lengthy text, presented in Q and A interview style. The book talks about the origin, development, character design, writing and storyboarding, sound, backgrounds, animation and post production, and what the future holds. Last few pages are fan art from the crew who worked on the show.

If you are a fan of the show, you should not miss this book. Reading about the stories and effort that goes behind putting such an animated series together really adds additional depth to what you've already watched. Highly recommended.
