- The Art of Animation: The Story of the Disney Studio Contribution to a New Art by Bob Thomas (1958)
I have had this one on my list for a fairly long time. Written in 1958, it was one of the first books to look at modern animation and it offered fantastic insight into the Walt Disney Studios. Just flipping through it offers some amazing images and text.

You might think it strange to collect older travel books, but they are a great source for historical information about shows, restaurants and attractions.
- The Black Hole [DVD]
I haven’t seen this in, oh, 20 years or so. Let’s hope it holds up!

Absolutely LOVE The Art of Animation book. Great look into how an animated film is made, with Sleeping Beauty as the example. Interesting how this book compares to the two different versions that came out in the 1990’s.
Good find on the Thomas book. I actually came across this at a library sale a few years ago but it was in such abysmal shape I left it. I should have picked it up anyway for the $2.00 they were selling it for even though it wasn’t intact.
Let me know how “The Black Hole” holds up. I’ve been on the fence about that one. I haven’t seen it since it came out either, and remember it being a bit stiff and not a lot of fun. I watched “Tron” for the first time in 20 years about a year ago, and while I was surprised that I still remembered almost all of the dialogue verbatim, that it wasn’t a very rewarding viewing for me. My kids hated it.
Oh, and here’s a picture of my copy of The Art of Animation http://twitpic.com/1jj93u I truly love this book.
The Black Hole Is great! I hope you got the widescreen edition. Look for the “Making of” film hosted by Harrison Ellenshaw. Very intersesting!
