From the publisher:
Completes the trilogy that began with Ray Harryhausen: An Animated Life and continued with The Art of Ray Harryhausen. Tells the whole story of stop-motion model animation from the late nineteenth-century pioneers to the work of Tim Burton and Aardman Animation.
The book is lavishly illustrated with stills, many of them from forgotten movies and never published before in book form; sketches and storyboards for projects, both realized and abandoned; explanatory diagrams showing how the effects were achieved; rare photographs of animators and artists at work; and a host of memorabilia.
