A New History of Animation, Maureen Furniss

A New History of Animation chronicles the history of animation from the caves of Lascaux to and early cinematic devices to Japanese Anime and the computer generated effects of the present day. Richly illustrated and global in scope, this book can be used for all levels since it explains all the key technical concepts, filling a gap in the market for a complete and well-researched animation history textbook.  Maureen Furniss, PhD is an animation historian at California Institute of the Arts.
