Publisher Description

Since its debut in 2005, Avatar: The Last Airbender has remained one of Nickelodeon's most talked about and highest-rated animated series to date, and it's not too hard to see why... Not only does it offer an epic storyline, engaging characters, action, adventure, and a powerful message about the importance of hope in a world long-besieged by war, all the while serving up top-notch entertainment. It's also beautifully executed, a stunning masterpiece of animated storytelling that harmonizes Western influences with aesthetic inspiration drawn from a diverse array of cultures, including those of China, Japan, India, and the Inuit.

An unprecedented look at the concept, design, and production art behind this smash-hit series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Art of the Animated Series chronicles the show's development — from the very first sketch through to the series finale and beyond! — along with behind-the-scenes commentary from series creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino.

* Featuring hundreds of images, most of which Nickelodeon has never released to the public!

What the?!

This is more of a review of iBooks than the actual book, which I apparently have to do now, considering the iOS 8 glues iBooks to your device now.
So here I am, little ole' bored me trying to find something to do and think "Hey! Maybe I should by a book!" So I go on iBooks and think "Hey! An Avatar book'll soak up some time!" So I'm scrolling through the Avatar books and think "HEY! I know! I'll finally buy that $15.00 Avatar Art book that I've always wanted to buy!" Then I press on this and see frikken twenty something dollars? What the crap do you think we are, stupid? Like we ain't gonna notice the thirteen dollar price raise? You must be outta your mind thinking that's okay. $28.00 my donkey! What kind of freak employee would suggest to iBooks "Hey, let's just raise the price thirteen dollars and see if anybody would notice! Ya know, just because!" Pfft. Unbelievable. It's almost kind funny. Heh heh. Well, I don't know about anybody else, but I'm not buying anything from iBooks anytime soon. You never know if the prices of the books you're buying are thirteen dollars more than it is at your local book store.
