Couple late arriving art books I ordered for my birthday.  The new Alex Toth book from IDW and the Art of Kung Fu Panda 2.  The Toth book is HUGE – close to 10″x13″ and probably 1.5″ thick!  Below you can see it side by side with a standard comic book trade paperback.  Only had a chance to flip through it so far, but it seems to be equal parts biography and coverage of his work in the early years.  So you get photos and info about his growing up, getting into art, time in the army, and then lots of reprints of various stories he did.  One of the coolest things is that this is just volume 1 of a 3 volume set!
