7 Down, 45 To Go "The Art of Tim Burton" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

My wife is an artist, and I married into a considerable collection of art books, but The Art of Tim Burton is among the most impressive in our personal library.

Collecting illustrations from over 40 years of the film director's life and work, The Art of Tim Burton, the book's artwork is clearly its highlight, but the commentary from colleagues and friends (including Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder, Danny Elfman and others) brings the work into sharper context.

Much like a good biography, the 400+ pages of The Art of Tim Burton brought me a deeper appreciation for the director's films and a greater appreciation for his creative process and artistic genius.

My next book is Journey to the End of Islam, by Michael Muhammad Knight.
