A Century of Stop Motion Animation, from Méliès to Aardman
by Harryhausen, Ray, and Tony Dalton
New York: Watson-Guptill Publications. Fine in Fine dj. (c.2008). First Edition. Hardcover. 978-0-8230-9980-1 . (B&W/color photos, other illustrations) "In this book, [the authors] trace the history of the genre from the almost accidental discovery that inanimate objects could be brought to life on screen to movies such as Jurassic Park, which combined stop-motion animation with computer-based techniques to bring a new generation of prehistoric creatures into film. In doing so, they give readers fascinating insights into the patience and ingenuity of the animators, along with the development and refinement of their technology. The book is lavishly illustrated with stills, many of them from forgotten movies and never published before in book form; sketches and storyboards for projects, both realized and abandoned; explanatory diagrams showing how the effects were achieved; rare photographs of animators and artists at work; and a host of memorabilia." ***NOTE: Additional shipping charges for this heavy book may apply for non-U.S. customers, or for Priority Mail shipping within the U.S.; if this causes you concern, please inquire before placing your order.*** .
