Is it just me or were the former "Art/Making of"-books (from the 90's and the early 2000's) better than the current ones? I thought the former books were more elaborate, detailed and more satisfying as a whole, while the current ones are skimpier and less elaborate. There are exceptions of course, as those books written by Charles Salomon, but those are for already established, succesful "Princess"-films ("Snow White", "Sleeping Beauty", "Beauty and the Beast"). Otherwise, I find the "Art of"-books for the current films to be less satisfying as a whole.

What are your thoughts about this?

yeah Ive noticed that as well. I have the books for Brave & Frozen and Ive noticed that I dont feel "satisfied" with what they offer. I want more. With the 90s books, they were chock full of breathtaking art. I could look through the pages over and over and discover something new. With the newer books I give it one or two look throughs and I feel like Ive seen it all.

I also wonder of its also just that... well(sorry) hand drawn animation produces more interesting art than CGI, at least for my taste...I especially miss seeing rough & cleaned up animation line drawings in the newer books...
