I love the Airbender animation series. I can still remember the strong nostalgia I had while watching the first episode of The Legend of Korra: Book 1 Air, recalling all the characters from the previous series, and watch how time has passed and given us a new generation to look upon.

The Legend of Korra: Book 1 - Air, The Art of the Animated Series is a nice addition to that experience. It''s as good as the first art book Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Art of the Animated Series .

The cover art is different from the original product image. It has Korra looking rather too serious.

The book features development art from all the 12 episodes in Book One: Air. There are designs for the main characters, followed by the Republic City and its inhabitants and then we have art from each episode in order.

Character designs form the bulk of the book. There''s Korra in different outfits, including those from Pro-bending gear, and also the cute four-year-old Korra. There are lots of line art and also coloured versions for the characters. Other characters are Tenzin and his family, Lin Beifong, Amon, Katara, and about most of the characters that appear in the episodes.

The environment art are beautiful. The buildings and sets have a mix of oriental, industrial and European style. The world has changed since Aang was the Avatar. You''ll see some connection to the past, for example, with Avatar Aang Memorial Island. Overall, the world feels very different because it has evolved. My favourite piece is the aerial painting of Air Temple Island that appears towards the end.

The last few pages have some pretty cool miscellaneous art, such as the classic Avatar characters in their adult form, and also other characters drawn in non-animation style.

Throughout the book, commentary is provided by creators Michael Dante DiMartino, Bryan Konietzko and director Joaquin Dos Santos. They give illuminating insight to the designs and stories.

Highly recommended to fans of the series, and those who like animation or character art.

It''s one of my 2013 favourite artbooks.

I bought this art book for a friend of mine for his birthday and bought it under ''like new'' conditions which I had another art book, Avatar the Last Airbender''s,, brand new and bought at the exact same time, to compare it to. The book, while it did seem to never have been opened and leafed through, had a lot of wear and tear around the edges and scratches with water splotches on the cover, as well as what looked like water damage from how warped it was. If you want a like new product, I''d just buy it new, not ''like'' new, because again, that''s not what this was at all, I would''ve maybe put this under ''good'' condition if I was the seller, that would''ve made more sense. This wasn''t EXCELLENT like they said at all, I was fairly disappointed, but I gave it to my friend regardless and he, being the sweet heart he is, was happy anyway.

First off, I must state that this review is for the Kindle version, and not the actual artbook. The actual artbook is flawless, and I wish I could say the same for its digital sister.

I was very happy to hear that the Korra artbooks were finally available for digital download. Sadly, it was a major let down. The contents of the book are beautiful, the visuals are stunning, but all of it is useless unless you can actually ZOOM in to see the details of the drawings. And since this version locks the images in place, it makes informational text illegible. For 16 dollars, this is inexcusable. The whole point of the artbook is to see these things, and not being able to zoom/read text makes the artbook a waste of money.

As for the book itself: it is beautiful! It shows various artworks of each character, backgrounds, story boards, and everything a Korra fan could ask for. My favorite is the character expressions sheets. They are so lifelike. If you are a fan of the series, or need inspiration for your own animation career, I definitely recommend buying the physical copy of this book. You won''t be sorry.

In 2012, the creative team behind the popular animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender produced a sequel series focusing on the next Avatar, this time a headstrong teenage girl named Korra in a darker and more mature series. Since I am a fan of both Avatar shows and already own the book Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Art of the Animated Series, I immediately pre-ordered this product when it was announced. Unlike The Last Airbender, which was based in an feudal Asia inspired world with some examples of technology such as airships and tanks, the Legend of Korra has a 1920''s theme with much of the series taking place in Republic City, an urban metropolis that resembles Manhattan but with Asian design principles, with more developed technology such as airships, automobiles, motorcycles and factories that heavily emphasise a steampunk theme. The Legend of Korra combines the mystical, fantasy and martial arts themes of The Last Airbdender with real life aspects such as technology, modernisation, organised crime and a group of extremists that become the main antagonists of the series. Like the previous series, a book of artwork was released for the Legend of Korra, but because this show has had only one season so far, this book is 40 pages shorter than the book for The Last Airbender, which contained production art for the entire three seasons, but the quality of material shown in this book more than makes up for the decrease in quantity. It should also be noted that the front cover to this book is different to the one advertised, as it features a solo painting of Korra and it is not a group shot of the main cast, though that is included in the book. This book is filled with hundreds of pieces of artwork that includes the design process from initial sketches of the main cast, animals, props, vehicles and environment to their final versions and colour tests. The majority of the book is taken up by individual chapters that focus on each of the first season''s 12 episodes, including storyboards, expression sheets, background paintings and designs for supporting characters and new vehicles as they are introduced in the series. The book concludes with ancillary art by the production team, such as designs for DVD covers, promotional posters, random illustrations and two group shots, one of the new ''Team Avatar'' and the second showing the original Team Avatar as adults, which is a nice touch by the series creators. The amount of artwork in this book showing the creation of a new location and era for the Avatar series is immense, you can see examples of the architecture used in designing Republic City, designs for city monuments such as the Avatar Aang Statue (which was inspired by the Statue of Liberty), detailed drawings of the hot rods, automobiles and trains that populate the city streets and conceptual art of the Avatar series'' new sport Pro-Bending, ranging from the arena and uniforms to the conceptual illustrations that were pitched to the studio executives. The book itself is very well made, printed on high quality paper with a good layout and informative annotations by the series creators. There are some pages where ink has slightly transferred from the opposite page but this is barely noticeable and a minor detraction from what is a very inspiring look behind the scenes of a critically and commercially successful animated series. In conclusion, I would highly recommend this book to fans of the Legend of Korra and fans of the Avatar universe in general, and animators and enthusiasts of production artwork for animated series and films would also enjoy this book. Like the book Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Art of the Animated Series, it is a high quality piece of material and should a similar book be published for the Legend of Korra''s upcoming second season, then I will likely buy that as well.

After Avatar, the legend of Aang, came Korra, a stubborn new avatar in a new ''steampunky'' world. Dive into the sketches that lead to this different, but in it''s own way amazing, sequel to Aang. Fight visually together with the creators to defeat the anti-benders.
