The World History of Animation by Stephen Cavalier

As a director at Disney and contributor to Spielberg's animation team, Stephen Cavalier has acquired a wealth of knowledge about the industry over the course of his career, and his new book, The World History of Animation, is a testament to this experience. This comprehensive collection features key figures from across Europe, North America and Asia, and includes everything from feature films and TV to digital animation and games. Organised chronologically, the book introduces landmark characters and technical innovations, while also paying special attention to the individuals and studios that made it all possible through biographies and interviews. It also lists certain must-see movies, complete with synopses and film stills, making it easy for readers to experience the world of animation on their own.

This beautiful, easy to follow book is perfect for both seasoned film buffs and those looking to expand their knowledge of this extensive and fascinating genre.
