From LAIKA, the studio behind the hit films Coraline and ParaNorman, comes The Boxtrolls, a marvel of stop-motion animation and creative storytelling, loosely based on the beloved children's book, Here Be Monsters. This comedic fable takes place in a cheese-obsessed Victorian-era town where Boxtrolls - lovable, cavern-dwelling oddballs - are misunderstood and face extermination. The Art of The Boxtrolls features the amazingly detailed artwork that went into this film's creation, including character sketches, puppets, textiles, set dressing and 3-D printed facial models, alongside the story of the film's development.
