The Art of Frozen features concept art from the making of the film, including character studies and sculpts, colour scripts, storyboards and more, alongside interviews and with the film's artists about the making of this adventurous animated film.

"That The Art of Frozen is a visual treat goes without saying. There is the splendid art: the original sketches, concept paintings, storyboards, backgrounds, maquettes, and finished art; each piece identified to its artist. There are the photographs of mid-19th century Norwegian architecture and costumes used for art reference. There are the informative comments by the production staff. But more than most art-of books, The Art of Frozen describes the thinking that has made Frozen almost imperceptibly different from all of the other modern animated features.The Art of . movie books are usually for those who have seen the movie. The Art of Frozen is so insightful as to what makes a good animated theatrical feature that even if you have not seen Frozen...you should really study this book. Don't just read it; study it!"-Animation World Network
