The Art of Pixar Short Films is a book set published by Chronicle Books on February 25, 2009. It is written by Amid Amidi and features a foreword by John Lasseter. The book shows more than 300 pieces of concept art, storyboards, full-color pastels, digital and pencil sketches, character studies, and color scripts from Pixar's short films.


While Pixar Animation Studios was creating beloved feature-length films such as Monsters, Inc., Ratatouille, and WALL-E, it was simultaneously testing animation and storytelling techniques in dozens of memorable short films. Andre and Wally B proved that computer animation was possible; Tin Toy laid the groundwork for what would become Toy Story; and Mike's New Car exposed Pixar's finely tuned funny bone. In The Art of Pixar Short Films, animation expert and short film devotee Amid Amidi shines a spotlight on these and many more memorable vignettes from the Pixar archive. Essays and interviews illuminate more than 250 full-color pastels, pencil sketches, storyboards, and final rendered frames that were the foundation of Pixar's creative process.
