This is really interesting for all those interested in the history of how animations come alive, even remotely. Also, it makes you wish you could draw better :). Not much more to say, since the book's essence and appeal lies precisely in its powerful visuals (and the text parts are pretty short as well).
I do recommend you to go through it if you have the chance, it's both entertaining and informative.

Shelves: animation
This book showcases 80 of the world's most prominent artist and studios. Included glorious pages of art work, biographies and contact information. Unfortunately the writeup is short with an average of 5 paragraphs. There's also translation into another language (I've no idea what) just after the English write up.

The abundant of prints, cartoons, film stills and other screen shots makes this more of an art book resource. Because these animations contained all sorts of genre, the variety of style

Doesn't have much in the way of text, but really a great resource for inspiration. Acting as a kind of who's who in animation, this book covers most of the influential animators and animation companies producing work today. In addition to ample color photos of their work, it provides a short bio and most importantly...their contact information. Highly recommended to any filmmaker in need of creative stimulus or anyone interested in experimental film/animation.
kinda like the history of animation although maybe not really
part corporate biography, part animator's reference book for beginners.
although there are some names left out, still, a good pop-culture-esque book.
