To Infinity and Beyond

This October, Chronicle Books will release To Infinity and Beyond: The Story of Pixar Animation Studios by Karen Paik and Leslie Iwerks. The hefty 320-page volume celebrates Pixar’s 20-plus year history from its early days under George Lucas to the recent merger with Disney. The book will include two 8-page gatefolds and over 400 color images. Cover price is $75. It’s a $51 pre-order at Amazon.

Also worth noting, the new Leslie Iwerks film documentary about the studio, The Pixar Story, will have a sneak preview at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival next month. The Annecy screening is on Friday, June 15.

    For the first book about a studio known for its consistently pleasant design, this cover leaves something to be desired. The font choice seems odd.

    Don’t judge a book by its cover…

  • Agreed about the weak cover. Chronicle usually does really eye catching books. But I’m still salivating for this one.

  • I’ve seen The Pixar Story and it’s definitely worth seeing if you can.

    Oooooo! I want!

    And I like the cover. It’s focused- almost iconic.

    Agree on the font, though. Basic Helvetica italic might have been better.

  • I’m excited about this one because it appears to be (I think) a largely text-based book, rather than just a glossy image showcase. Don’t get me wrong, I own the ‘art of’ books, but for a while I’ve been looking for a good, informative book about Pixar and it’s people, processes and history. Thanks for the post, Amid.

    Will the documentary about the studio, The Pixar Story, be released on DVD or is there any other way to see it?
