Format: Hardcover
I still get amazed to hear stories about a film that was made almost 80 years ago. The book is tiny, but the illustrations and sketches in it look beautiful, I loved every bit of it and I now want the big edition of the book, but it is out of print. The story about making the film is short; but truly great, how Walt and the awesome group of artists worked in shifts to finish this film! Every film-maker will feel better after reading that Walt was still making changes during the premiere of this wonderful achievement of story-telling. animation and cinema. the result still holds incredibly well after almost 80 years...

Recommended for anyone! If you can afford it, buy the big book!

Coffee Table Book with Substance 26 Jan 2001
By "disneychick" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book offers a clear and concise introduction to the development of Walt Disney's first full-length animated feature. The book's use of stills, roughs, and concept art vividly illustrate much of the "magic" that goes into making an animated film. Not only that, but the book's incorporation of technical details provides enough "insider information" to appeal to those wanting to know more about the how of animation. In fact, I used the book's section on the multiplane camera to introduce the invention's importance to an introductory class in animation. It worked wonders!
Also nicely developed in the book is how Snow White set the production and narrative standards for the Disney's subsequent films. It's nice to see a coffee table book with substance!

Gorgeous artwork; good intro to animation process 2 May 1998
By David Lennert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I loved the artwork and descriptions of the animation process. (The display of the art is organized to also help explain the process.) Also "behind the scenes" recollections of how the movie was made as well as a discussion on how to conserve, and prepare for sale, animation artwork. This can be equally appreciated by those with serious or casual interest in animation art.

Great Graphic Record of the First Disney feature--but could use more explaining for the layman 8 May 2012
By James J. Bloom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a handy record of how Walt Disney achieved a major cinematic breakthrough at a time when cartoons were mostly 5-10 minute light two-dimensional visual displays without much in the way of story-line or efforts at verisimilitude. That said, I wish there were more in the way of connecting narrative to explain how each well-illustrated cell and story-board diagram fit into the Big Picture. As is, this is more of a notebook format, providing excellent visual aides to understanding the very complex and labor-intensive creative process underlying this pioneering animated epic. But for the price and diminutive size, it does have much to commend it.
concise overview of Snow White 2 Sep 2013
By DisneyRREngr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Small pocket book with a capule history in pictures, (with some text and captions) of the making of Snow White. Good for a quick overview of character and story development.
