About this deal

It's a unique book, a combination of Disney and animation history, as well as the process of developing an animated film.

The book answers everybody's question about how the amazingly lifelike effects of Disney character animation were achieved, including charming stories of the ways that many favorite animated figures got their unique personalities.I highly recommend The Illusion of Life to Disney devotees, and to anyone wanting to know more about animation and its history. This is the first I have found that dives a bit deeper and discusses Disney’s history and the principles and procedures of animation. An artist could represent the actual figure, if he chose, meticulously capturing its movements and actions.

Every time I read this Bible of Animation is like living a parallel life in a Disney world; a world of a true genius man and his talented artists, surely among the greatest to ever grace the screen. It gave a sense of, ‘us artists are all in this together’ and really felt like wisdom was being passed down onto me rather than just reading any old textbook.We also somehow had little plastic Disney character figures to play with (Kids - this was before Wal-Mart and China and the Internet) I still got to see Disney Illustrations everywhere and imagine the movies that were so famous in our culture. From the perspective of two men who had an important role in shaping the art of animation, and within the context of the history of animation and the growth of the Disney studio, this is the definitive volume on the work and achievement of one of America's best-known and most widely loved cultural institutions. Disney has reached several peaks in the course of nearly a hundred years of life, and perhaps he will still reach more peaks in the coming days, but it is undeniable that one day he will decline and die. What kind of contradiction to show and how to show it is a question that the artist has to ponder over and over again. Fortunately, animation works, in the same way, Itis capable of getting inside the heads of its audiences, into their imaginations.
