Day & Night: The Book

I’m not hiding my enthusiasm for Teddy Newton’s short Day & Night, and neither is Pixar. Instead of releasing a Little Golden Book based on the short, as they had for several previous shorts, the studio contracted with Chronicle Books to produce a handsome little hardback edition. Teddy wrote and drew this adaptation and its a wonderful souvenir of the film — a cartoon sure to be nominated for this year’s Best Animated Short. I took these snaps with my iPhone above and below (click thumbnails below to enlarge). The book just came out and is listed on Amazon now for ten bucks ($10.19 to be exact)! 36 glossy pages, beautifully rendered and a must-have.

P.S. Next week we’ll have a surprise contest for an autographed copy of the book.

  • That is some beautifully-bound eye candy. I just placed my order on Amazon before I even finished reading this post!

  • Looks very cool. I thought this was the most innovative, engaging and amusing short in a long time.

    “Day and Night” is popular for the same reasons Mozart is popular: they exist at the narrow intersection where good taste, popular appeal, high-concept, and masterful execution cross paths.

    It’s a rare thing when a work of entertainment deserves not praise, but love.

    • That review is almost as beautiful as the film.

    Nice on the contest. I’ll try to enter.

    Does it come with an embedded talking chip, so that the book can be ruined by Dr. Wayne Dyer’s speech too?

    • Dan Ang


    • You said it, Fred.

    • Oliver

      The bit that the radio station broadcasts at the end? I thought that was too obvious as well.

  • I Just ordered my copy! it looks to be awesome!!!! was hoping something like this would come out! and i am thrilled that Teddy Newton handled it!! That postman can’t get here soon enough!!!

  • I’ll take one off your hands.
