From the Publisher"After 'Why is the sky blue?' one of the most important questions we ask is 'What is a cartoon?'. This is the definitive book that tells all about the process closest to our hearts—animation."
—Albie Hecht, President, Film and TV Entertainment, Nickelodeon
"This book is great! If ever there was the ultimate textbook for animation, this is it. 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.
"I love the new edition of Kit Laybourne's The Animation Book. As with the first edition, he manages to give a world-eye view on the art and craft of my favorite medium with extra emphasis on personal styles and techniques, while including studio styles and techniques. I'm especially impressed that computer animation has been folded into the blend without overwhelming the mix."
—Henry Selick, Director of The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach
"A very essential book for any animator. I wish I'd read this book before I started out in animation."
"I read one chapter on stop-motion animation 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 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
"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 Willie, Head of the Animation Department, The National Film School of Denmark
