The last thing I thought I would be doing was buying an Art Of book for the movie 'Krampus'. I bought this book after watching it because the production design on this film is *that* good.
One normally doesn't associate Christmas with horror. Krampus pleasantly surprised, and scared, everyone that saw it when it came out. I wanted to look behind the curtains at all the ideas they came up with before they chose their memorable final designs. I won't talk about any specific characters as I feel that's a bit spoilery for those that have not seen the film yet; it's best seen not know much.
This is a well-made Art Of book (and I own many) that is nicely formatted and designed, with a large amount of unreleased artwork, select stories behind some of the pieces, and an insight into the creative goals involved during the production process. There are very few screenshots from the movie (compared to lesser Art Of books) filling in the pages. What you get here are ideas about what would elves, toys, and even an anti-Santa look like if someone like the Brothers Grimm told the story? The book is filled with lots of gorgeous (and nightmarish) conceptual art for the characters, locations, and includes original storyboards.
The Art of Krampus explores the fairy tale aspects of Christmas folklore—but with a dark twist. There is a lot of beauty in seeing the dark side of things. Recommended.

This is a quality book that shares the lore of Krampus and the art behind the movie. I bought it for the horror fanatic in our family and he LOVED it. The book is great quality in terms of printing and binding. The book came skrink wrapped so the over was protected during shipping and arrived in pristine condition. The only downfall was I couldn't sneak a peek at the book before gifting it thanks to that shrink wrap! But that's more a me issue and less a fault. I would definitely buy this book again. I may buy a copy for myself!

Beautiful book. Under the dust jacket, it is a handsome burgundy color with black title. Full of sketches, concept art, and stills from the movie. Great background information and explanations of various scenes. The information on and photos of the construction of Krampus and the other characters was facinating. I adore the movie and am pleased as punch to be able to own this book.

Enjoyed this book more than the actual movie! I love seeing how a project comes together, and the different ideas that lead up to the final work.
