About this title

Synopsis:

Hundreds of full-color and black-and-white illustrations and photographs accompany a definitive chronicle of the history of animation, from magic-lantern shows, through the art of Walt Disney and the growth of cartoon characters, to Beavis and Butthead.

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.
