Next summer, the creators of Monsters, Inc. and Toy Story bring us a new cinematic adventure set in the vibrant world of the Great Barrier Reef. The film stars a clown fish who sets on an epic journey to rescue his son who is unexpectedly taken far from home. Albert Brooks provides the voice of Nemo's fretful father who risks life and fin to find his son. Newcomer Alexander Gould is heard as the adventurous young Nemo. Ellen DeGeneres voices Dory, a forgetful but relentlessly optimistic companion that the father meets during his travels. The Art of Finding Nemo captures the creation of this film with vividly reproduced concept art and insightful interviews with the Pixar Studios team. The only Nemo book published for adults, The Art of Finding Nemo celebrates the wizardry of Pixar animation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Books about animated movies are rarely artistically accomplished enough to astound. Not so Mark Cotta Vaz's coffee-table book THE ART OF FINDING NEMO which happily isn't a by-the-numbers look at how the hit film was made. Instead Vaz focuses on the illuminating concept art that inspired the digital artists at Pixar. And the result is magical. The artists were able to use a draft of the script as their blueprint (rare in animated films), and it paid huge dividends.
In many ways the concept art surpasses the digital art of the movie itself. There's an emotional (not sentimental), articulated depth to the work, particularly in the pastels and the charcoal renderings (by production designer Ralph Eggleston and Simon Varela, respectively) that digital art - for all the technology involved - simply cannot match. So cheer the movie's accomplishments and heart, but let the astonishing art included here flood your mind. - Premiere
