Book Review: The Art of The Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole

The Art of The Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole - 01

Thanks to Animal Logic for mailing this book to me.

Animal Logic is an animation studio based in Australia. The Legends of the Guardians is one of the big animated movie titles they have worked on. The film was directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen).

It's a well produced book that has production quality similar to art books from Chronicle Books. Good printing on good paper. There are lots of wonderful artworks, lots of owls of course, writeup on the production process and some pretty nice scene paintings.

This is a 160-page hardcover artbook self-published by Animal Logic. It's only available through their website www.animallogic.com.

Oh wow. You have no idea how

Oh wow. You have no idea how long I've been waiting for a book similar to this to be made. After the movie was released, stayed in theaters and then quietly went on its merry way to the abyss of DVD and Blu-Ray, I was certain the chance for an art-book was gone for good.

It's very pricy though. I need to wait a couple more days before actually getting to buy it. Hope it won't go out of stock by then. Still, 75$ book+shipping for Europe IS a lot of money so I'm hoping the high price will keep it around for a while.

Legend of the Guardians is my

Legend of the Guardians is my all time favorite CG animated film, as Zack Snyder is truly a visionary master. So glad to be gifted with an art book...

Yay, I finally ordered. I

Yay, I finally ordered. I wonder if the 6-8 week limit is accurate though. Anyone have any feedback on the shipping time?

Hmmm, seems to be very owl

Hmmm, seems to be very owl-centered. Gonna be a problem if you're not diggin them owls.

Great book Parka, thanks for

Great book Parka, thanks for the heads up. Shipping time for me was about a week I'm in Australia though.

it's a supper good art book,

it's a supper good art book, yet, the book is too expansive. It almost costs EUR85. (Crying)

I luv this site, Parka! I

I luv this site, Parka! I sent an email to AnimalLogic and they said; "we are working on bringing our book to the public via some lovely local books stores in both Sydney and internationally. Stay tuned for updates!" Hopefully, in Europe before x-mas!! They also told me that "each book is packaged by hand from our Sydney office – no production line here!" Even by Sea Mail it would cost $35, so no need for me to 'beg' my friend in Sydney to send me a copy...still contemplating the book though...

4 days ago to buy this book

4 days ago to buy this book。send three messages to AnimalLogic。But AnimalLogic I did not respond。Do not know that the book has not mailed to。Do not know when I received the book。

Bugua... I'm not sure if you

Bugua... I'm not sure if you mean that the book did not arrive to you yet. But if that's the problem then I should let you know that mine took almost 3 months to reach me - but it did, in the end. I naturally emailed AnimalLogic when I saw that the 8 weeks had passed and there was still no sign of my book. And they said that the estimate had changed to 12 weeks and that I should wait a bit more. I got my book almost 2 weeks after I got their reply. It was in excellent shape (after all that time I was expecting a train-wreck). So yeah, hope you get your soon, too.

I ordered the Artbook on 20th

I ordered the Artbook on 20th August. Today - 19th November - it arrived and I'm living in Germany. I was already worried ... but the Artbook is awesome and I don't regret it :)

@Parka: Thank you very much for the Review!

What a strange comment...

What a strange comment...

Of course the book is owl-centered. Do you have any idea what the movie is about?
If you don't like owls, you wouldn't watch this movie not too mention buy this book.
