Review:

The first chapter of Enchanted Drawings: The History of Animation begins with a quotation from Arthur C. Clarke: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." This elegant, richly illustrated book tells the story of animation from its 18th-century beginnings as a magic lantern show (a box with a lamp and a mirror) to the creation of Jurassic Park and The Lion King.

From Library Journal:

This revised edition enlarges on the original text and updates animation's screen history to include such recent blockbusters as Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King. Along with a detailed text, this "showy browser's delight" (LJ 11/15/89) includes more than 400 illustrations-250 in color. If you grudgingly passed on the $75 original, now's your chance to snap it up for the terrific price of $29.99.
