Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Kit Laybourne's previous book, The Animation Book: "I read one chapter and then went and made a little film with my seven-year-old son. When he finally saw the thing moving and come to life, he giggled for a solid half hour. I love this book." —Peter Hastings, writer/producer of Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain and creator of Disney's One Saturday Morning. "This is a great book! The Animation Book is the perfect starter kit for anyone interested in entering the animation business or learning about the art of animation." — Terry Thoren, CEO/President, Klasky Csupo Inc. "The Animation Book is a classic. If you can afford to buy only one book on animation, this is the one to buy—it has it all." —Gunnar Wille, head of the animation department, The National Film School of Denmark “Kit Laybourne is a leading voice in new media; this book brings his knowledge and insight to everyone.”—Ellen Lupton, curator of contemporary design, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum; author, Thinking with Type and Graphic Design: The New Basics “In a world of customization and social networking, Kit Laybourne defines a new preoccupation: ‘personal media.’ This is a digital ‘do-it-yourself’ for all of us with a computer, a camera, and a desire to do more.”—Paul Warwick Thompson, director, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum“Kit Laybourne has created a vital and fun-reading ‘do it yourself’ guide to communicating in the twenty-first century, with valuable insights, design tips, and creative activities for nondesigners (i.e., most of us).”—Colleen Macklin, associate professor and former chair, Communication Design & Technology Department, Parsons The New School For Design “At last, a book that humanizes the technologies we use to tell stories. With a calm bedside manner, Laybourne empowers anyone inclined to self-expression to champion their voice, vision, and talent.”—Chee Pearlman, principle, Chee Company and former editor in chief, I.D.
