The whole product is nicely packaged. It is very interesting, but a more in-depth book about the nine old men or Disney animation will give you a lot more. This is more of a novelty gift that you place on a coffee table or the shelf for your guest to flip through. It gets boring very quickly. The price point is a little much for what you're getting.
If you know what's in this collection and that seems interesting to you then you will love seeing the flip books. I like the flip books, but I wish there was more about the nine old men, more about the studio that created these movies and I wish that it had more than just one action to flip through. For me it was just okay.
- Beautifully produced.
- Gorgeous keepsake box. Heavy duty binding & cover and heavy paper stock
- Excellent reproductions (with a few soft focus scans)
- We've seen some of the animations before
- Pages are one-sided
- My original set came with damage to one of the covers (deep indentations), but Amazon quickly resolved.
*Nice hard sturdy display box to keep books protected
*Flip books are hard covered. This is fantastic! Normally, flip books are soft covered which leaves them looking very worn and bent in a short period of time. These books are easy to flip and are surrounded by a hard cover to keep the pages flat and in tip top shape!
*Still keeps the "feel" of the series with beautiful sturdy binding and printing.
*I thought there would be "more". The books are only single sided, so there's only one short scene of animation for each animator, leaving the back of the pages blank. This would have been prime real estate for a double sided flip book with 2 shots from each animator. It would have made this set 10x better. (Flip the book one way and see one animation, turn it over and flip the other way to see a different one). I don't like seeing the wasted blank space when it really could have been used to take it the extra mile. But overall, that's the only major con I can think of but it was is a pretty big let down for me.
*Even though it still has the "feel" of the previous books, it's a bit difficult to envision this a part of them. Not sure where to store it on the bookshelf since it's more of a collector/gift set than a new installment in the series.
I also created a full flip-through video of the flipbooks on my Youtube channel. Just head over to youtube and do a search there for gfWP6NOa6AE and the video should pop up :)
