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.

This beautiful volume serves as the must-have book for fans of the film, artists and art collectors, and anyone who appreciates some frightfully good movie magic.

Industry Reviews
Dave Bossert has created a wonderful book to commemorate The Nightmare Before Christmas, more than twenty-five years on. He masterfully blends interviews with Tim Burton, Danny Elman, and myself along with many of the talented artists who worked on the film into a very nuanced and personal picture of how the movie actually came together, was made, and went from a cult favorite to a holiday classic. It's a remarkable book about a remarkable, one-of-a-kind renegade project that has stood the test of time.--Henry Selick, Director, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas
