Summary[edit | edit source]

"Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas was crafted as a piece of art: a visual masterpiece that blended together the genius of Tim Burton's simple story and endearing characters with Danny Elfman's eclectic music; Henry Selick's stop-motion brilliance; Caroline Thompson's heartfelt script; and the painstaking efforts of hundreds of artists, animators, and technicians-all wrapped in a world that only Burton could conjure up. Paired with stunning and never-before-released art and photography, this book transports readers into a one-of-a-kind, retrospective journey detailing how Nightmare was thoughtfully crafted and all the ways in which the fan community worldwide has embraced the film ever since.
And what's this? This beautiful volume includes a 3D photograph by Tim Burton and a pair of 3D glasses!"
