Disney fans will love this history of animation and the insight it gives into the last 100 years of the company. Disney historian Fanning (The Disney Book) and veteran animator Deja, known for such works as Hercules and The Black Cauldron, take readers through each decade of Disney animation, starting with the 1920s, to demonstrate step-by-step how certain characters—Mickey Mouse, Coco, and Moana, to name a few—were drawn. The authors also contribute personal stories about their time spent working for Disney. These essays showcase their dedication to their work and their knowledge and expertise of animation, which makes the book an enjoyable and memorable read.
VERDICT This well-researched, intriguing drawing guide is essential reading for Disney fans and for those who want to learn more about animation, its history, or the world of Walt Disney. A valuable purchase.
