A new book exploring the history of animation – from the earliest experimentations with the genre through to the latest digital films from studios such as Pixar – goes on sale this September.
Published by Aurum Press, Stephen Cavalier’s The World History of Animation is described as “a global history of animation” which will “appeal to both core enthusiasts and the growing number of casual fans that are fascinated by the genre.”
Organised chronologically and broken into three sections (the Film age, the Television age and the Digital age), the book aims to tell the stories of those who have driven animation’s success over the past decades.
Cavalier says, “I wanted to write the sort of book that was accessible, inclusive and talked about all the wild possibilities of the animation universe as a whole, the inspirational geniuses that have created those possibilities and the amazing wide open journey of discovery and experimentation that is the story of animation. The kind of book I would have enjoyed as much as an interested teenager as I would as an animation professional.”
The World History of Animation goes on sale from September 2011 with an RRP of £30 – PRE-ORDER YOUR COPY TODAY
