In 1987, a small independent publication known as "Animation Magazine" began chronicling the achievements and artistic personalities working in the booming animation field. Twenty years later, the magazine continues to chart the careers and projects that define this important part of the entertainment business. In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the magazine has put together a colourful compendium of essays, interviews, lists, charts and faithful full colour reproductions of every cover from the past two decades. This book offers an important cross-section of the talented individuals who have contributed to the history of this thriving artistic arena in the past two decades. With contributions by John Lasseter, John Canemaker, Bill Plympton, Sylvain Chomet, Peter Lord, Leonard Maltin and Nancy Cartwright, this beautiful coffee-table book is a must-have for any animation lover or professional who works in the entertainment field.
