If you're excited about the release of Hotel Transylvania this week, you may be interested in The Art and Making of Hotel Transylvania. Due out tomorrow, this book is surprisingly extensive, with over 400 pieces of artwork from the movie. We've have more information on the upcoming release, including an exclusive set of images for you to check out.

"The Art and Making of Hotel Transylvania brings to (undead) life a fresh new spin on the classic horror monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, Werewolf, and the Invisible Man from Sony Pictures Animation and director Genndy Tartakovsky - creator of Samurai Jack and executive producer and director of Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series.

The story features Dracula, owner of a lavish five-stake resort hotel for monsters, away from the human world. On one special weekend, he invites some of the world's most famous monsters to celebrate his daughter's 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all these monsters is no problem, but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles into the hotel and takes a shine to his daughter, Mavis.

Featuring over 400 pieces of concept art, character sketches, storyboards and digital art, along with interviews with key filmmakers and crew, this full-color book is truly a spooky but fun treat for the eyes!"

The standard edition will be available tomorrow at a variety of book stores and online retailers. For those of you who are fans of Genndy Tartakovsky, you might want to consider the limited edition version, which is signed by Tartakovsky and includes a number of exclusive items: http://titanexclusives.myshopify.com/products/the-art-and-making-of-hotel-transylvania-limited-edition
