What a wonderful book! It is visually gorgeous and chock full of sketches, drawings, background & production art, and much more. Just turning the pages is a delightful experience, and put me into the captivating mood of the show.
I expected there to be a lot of amazing artwork in the book – and there is. In addition, the physical book itself is stunning, with many lovely small touches such as the intriguing endpapers (and of course, so much of what in between those endpapers is awe-inspiring). However I was surprised, and especially pleased, to find there was far more to read about how Over the Garden Wall came to be than I had hoped for.
The book is beautifully organized into chapters detailing all that went into making OTGW, as well as its pilot Tome of the Unknown. It was fascinating to read the remarkable behind-the-scenes story of the entire creative process – in the words of creator Patrick McHale, as well as many others who worked on the show -- how the original idea was first conceived, and learn about all the steps it took to see it through to its completion.
