"It teaches you endless things about the animation feature film process but does not give too much away about the film itself. I expect that it may make you even more excited to [see] Luca - which is precisely the effect it had on me."

"This art book is a lot of fun to peruse—you get to see a lot of the character designs in particular, from sketches to clay models to digital models; I particularly enjoyed the drawings of various sea monsters in their sea and human forms. There’s also a lot about the design of the fictional Portorosso, which was inspired by the seaside towns where director Enrico Casarosa grew up (and had adventures with his own childhood friend Alberto)."
