Hardcover, 324 pages ($50, Abrams)


The movie studio created in 1994 by Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen quickly became a major Hollywood player, and this handsome, high-end coffee-table book celebrates the production company’s achievements in animated films including the Shrek, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda franchises, as well as single releases such as Chicken Run, Puss in Boots, The Prince of Egypt and the recent Mr. Peabody and Sherman. More than 320 sketches, production designs, computer-animation graphics and still reproductions are accompanied by commentary from DreamWorks artists and movie directors, making for a gorgeous guided tour inside one of Tinseltown’s most successful fantasy factories.
