I got my ‘The Art of Paranorman’ book a couple of days ago and I really can’t recommend it enough! It’s a treasure trove of gorgeous concept art and interesting photos from inside Laika studios and there are chapters detailing virtually every aspect of the production, from writing the script, to creating hair and clothes for each puppet, to tackling special effects on a stop motion scale. If you have ANY interest in stop motion or animation in general, go and buy this book.
