I’ve had some great opportunites as of late to check out quite a few fantastic art books.  While I enjoy them regardless of what the content is from, when it’s something I’m a big fan of I obviously enjoy it all the more.  This is exactly the case with The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series Book Three.  The most recent of many art books I’ve now read and definitely sitting at the top with my love for the series.

The Legend of Korra has so many wonderful facets to cover and this book is just crammed full of goodies.  Covering everything from detailed character designs, animation sequences, and of course the gorgeous landscapes, there is no shortage of beautiful content.  Seeing components from a show like this from their barebone beginnings to their impressive finishing touches, the reader is completely immersed all the way through.

In the unfortunate event that you’ve never seen any of The Legend of Korra (or The Last Airbender for that matter), you are in for such a treat with this art book.  Whether it is all the new bad guys that were created, the whimsical spirits, or the spectucular world that was built around it, the team of artists have brought so much to the table.  And of course, one of the biggest benefits in my opinion is getting never before seen art.

It should go without saying, but as you’d imagine, if you haven’t watched any of the show or are behind, SPOILERS AHEAD.  This is most certainly a book that should be on your shelf at some point or another though, so grab it next time you hit your local store.  Fan or not, the amazing artwork that is offered in this book makes it worth a read regardless.
