Brave Guides and Art Books

Books for the adults and the obsessed

Brave is a fairy tale set in medieval Scotland and brought to life by the Pixar animators - all of which makes for beautiful art and a great story. And sometimes you can't get enough of either, which is where special art books and movie guides come in.


The Art of Brave
Available now at Amazon

Animators for Brave spent some 19 days in Scotland researching the gorgeous landscapes seen in the movie. And it shows. Everything from the rolling hills to the stone circle is based on actual locations in the highlands.

This book features behind-the-scenes interviews with the film's many artists, showcases the concept art that went into the creation of the movie, including color scripts, storyboards, character studies, environment art, sculpts, and more.
