The Art of Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-rabbit by Andy LaneStylistically, this book isnt mesmerizing to look at. But that was never Aardmans aim in the first place. Wallace & Gromits world is made to be a sort of realistic plasticine world where everythings a little chunkier. Which is why, in my eyes, this book does not lose points for its design. It is very much Wallace & Gromit-esque. It has a light-hearted feel to the book, just like with Aardmans comedic animations.
The contents are portioned well, with topics being equally distributed over about 2 pages each. When theres less text, there are more pictures. Overall, Id say youre getting a good amount of both. Also ladled in are joke dialogues from the movie. These have a good British sense of humour and I found reminded me partly why the movie was such an enjoyable experience. After having read this book, I feel like rewatching the movie (again)!
I am thoroughly satisfied with what Ive read and to my pleasure, theyd started off past works of Wallace & Gromit. Furthermore, talking about their shorts and beginnings, these were not just thrown in there as filler whatsoever. The passages ties in information from all of their films prior to the publication of this book and uses that to discuss the development of the characters and the world.
To end this off, something Ive yet to see in any other art book is the fact that THROUGHOUT this entire book, there are short notes indicating Easter eggs in the film. They make you very aware of the homages it pays and is definitely a testament to Nick Parks knowledge of pop culture, thought put into detail and desire to go that extra mile for a crack of a smirk.
