large product photo






















by John Grant

A short but comprehensive and beautifully-produced guide to the world of animation in the movies. Written by an expert in the field the book explores the origins of the form and its evolution through to the emergence of CGI. We see the masters of the art, the great studios and the characters who have generally outlived their creators. Features all the great movies (and some not-so-great ones too...).
