The Art of Up is the official concept art book of the Pixar animated film Up.

After Toy Story, Ratatouille, WALL-E, and other award-winning blockbusters, where else could Pixar Animation Studios go but UP? Their latest film is the heartwarming story of Carl Fredricksen (voiced by Ed Asner), a 78-year-old widower who feels that life has passed him by until a twist of fate takes him on a journey across the globe. Up is set to take off on May 29, 2009. The Art of Up contains more than 250 pieces of concept art developed for the feature, including storyboards, full-color pastels, digital and pencil sketches, character studies, color scripts, and more. Quotes from the director, artists, animators, and production team reveal the sky-high creativity that elevated this whimsical film to new heights.
