“The Art of Tron: Legacy” by Justin Springer

Art of Tron Legacy

Has anybody seen The Art of Tron: Legacy? Is it worth purchasing? It looks like Disney Editions is copying Chronicle’s popular wide-rectangular ‘art of’ book format. The book sells for $26.40 on Amazon.

Excerpts from the catalog description:

The Art of Tron: Legacy is a view into not only the creation of the 2010 film, but will also contain never-before-seen looks at the design and creation of 1982’s original Tron. Written by co-producer Justin Springer, the book will spotlight the technical wizardry, imagination, artistry, and passion that brought this project to life. From concept art and designs, to profiles on the characters and the actors playing them, to on-set photography and visuals from the movie itself, every step of the film’s creation will be broken down and laid out for the reader. In addition, this title will also have a preface by Joseph Kosinski, the director of Tron Legacy; and a foreword by Steven Lisberger, the director of the original Tron and producer of Tron Legacy. The book will use special fluorescent inks to make the illuminated world of Tron come to life, and is sure to be a must-have coffee table edition for the holidays.
