After you see THE BOXTROLLS, you can take home a memory of the experience with a copy of Philip Brotherton's The Art of the Boxtrolls, a handsome book filled with color illustrations that captures the art and heart of the lastest stop-motion animation adventure from LAIKA. Indeed LAIKA CEO Travis Knight lends his voice to the book's preface. The book's author Philip Brotherton is art director at LAIKA and has worked on all of the studio's films including the Oscar-nominated CORALINE and PARANORMAN as well as its newest offering, THE BOXTROLLS. In the book, THE BOXTROLL's artists and craftspeople offer insights into the creativity, ingenuity, and meticulous work that went into building and animating THE BOXTROLLS's world, and the book is illustrated with gorgeous concept art, puppets, props, and set photos.
