The Art Of Bone - Jeff Smith (2007)

The Art Of Bone





The Art Of Bone is a solid coffee table book. It's definitely geared toward fans of Bone and Jeff Smith. I'm coming straight at this book as a huge fan of both, so I was expecting a lot from this book. It's a great book as I said, but it does feel somewhat light though. I was expecting more than what we get in the book. Not a whole lot of text other than stating what page is from what book, etc...Also, it felt kind of scatter shot. There wasn't a flow to it like that of The Art Of Todd McFarlane or Jim Lee's Icon books. This is definitely a book that you should check out from the Library. I say this, already owning my own copy.

I remember leafing through this, perhaps at SDCC a couple years ago, thinking it felt rather light on the special features and unseen elements.  I mean, the whole of Bone is art, so I was expecting a lot of "Thorn" strips, concept art, early sketches and so on.  The stuff we didn't see, not just reiterating what we already did.

Exactly. I wanted to see stuff that was maybe printed once in an obscure comic or magazine. From the top of my head, there were maybe 3-4 out of the entire book. Sigh. I was expecting like 50 or more. Grr!
