"I was unprepared for the sheer magnificence of the final object when it arrived in the mail yesterday...This book is a great argument for why art books, when done right, still deserve to be printed on paper in this digital age." (Amid Amidi, Cartoon Brew)
"There can be no more important book about Disney history published this year" (Jerry Beck, Cartoon Research)
About the Author
John Canemaker is an Academy Award–, Emmy Award–, and Peabody Award–winning animation director and designer. His twenty-eight minute film, The Moon and the Son: An Imagined Conversation, won the 2005 Oscar for Best Animated Short, and his more than twenty films (and their original art) are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He is also a tenured professor and director of the animation program at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. The Lost Notebook is his eleventh book on the history of animation.
The Walt Disney Family Museum was co-founded by Walt Disney's daughter, Diane Disney Miller, and grandson, Walter Miller, in San Francisco's Presidio. The Museum is dedicated to celebrating the life, work, and legacy of Walt Disney through innovative exhibitions and programs, sharing the fascinating story of the man who raised animation to an art, transformed the film industry, tirelessly pursued innovation, and created a global, distinctively American legacy.
Top customer reviews
And of course, since most of the Disney movies described in the book are readily available, it's relatively easy to compare all the background paintings, character designs, special effects and set stills shown in the book with the finished product to enhance our appreciation. I did with 'Fantasia' and 'The Reluctant Dragon', and it was extremely enlightening as well as fun.
Definitely recommended if you are a Disney buff or a special effects enthusiast.
