Anyone who adores Disney animation will cherish a book like this one written by two of the "Nine Old Men", Ollie Johnston, and Frank Thomas. It contains page after page of illustrations but more importantly, a fully in depth explanation of how animation evolved over time. It's an exceptional book in all regards, and will take some time to actually read but; who's complaining about that? While the word "inbetweens" may have a simplistic meaning to you or to me, the authors go into depth, with matching illustrations, to show exactly how this function works within the studio. Animators do the first and last artwork of each movement (let's say of Mickey Mouse jumping) and then it is up to the inbetweener to make this action become "live." Sound simple? Not very, as it turns out. The version I have is a second printing: 1984 and in reasonably good shape. As a consummate Disney enthusiast, this is a lucky find indeed.

This book covers not just the technical aspects of animating characters, it brings out some of the thoughts and the processes evolution from the begining of Disney Studios and the early works through what experiments worked and why!
