From the back cover:

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.

Reveals the secrets of the animator's art and the technical tricks of the trade.

From the dustjacket:

This 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.

This came from the collection of Steve Sherman, a writer,artist, puppet-maker, puppet-performer, and avid collector. Steve worked as Jack Kirby's assistant, at Filmation, and Sid and Marty Krofft, before forming his own company Puppet Studio in 1984 contributing to "Pee-Wee's Playhouse", "Men in Black 1 & 2", "Mighty Joe Young", "Muppets" and numerous other TV series and feature films.
