Still the Animation Bible!
on 14 May 1999
Bought the Book in 1981, when it was first released. Now, 18 years later, it is still the book I would take to a dessert island. It is The Animation Bible. (But take it from experience AND from the book itself: Animation rules are no laws, and can be broken if they must!) Frank&Ollie were relieved to find that their editor ok'ed a paperback edition that was historically abridged, keeping all info on the making of Animation. So get that version also, to keep at work, while having the hardcover at your bed-side!!! Remember: Animation is primarily a matter of the mind! Don't just READ this book, UNDERSTAND it!
