On July 11 the art book finally came out: 240 pages of concept art, storyboards, and discussions about the creation of the show, all bound inside a beautiful hard cover. It even includes images from Ms. Sugar’s early work, including many stills from her student film Singles.
Early concept sketches for the Gems? This book has those. Early sketches of the Beach City citizens? It has those too. Backgrounds from the show? Those are in, and they’re lovely.
If you’re still on the fence about this one, we can say reservation: get this book. It’s gorgeous, and it’s great to see so much from the show’s creation.
