From the back cover:
In the fantastic setting of the Gipsoteca Fiorentina, in the magical city of Florence, an incredible exhibition gives us a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the Hanna-Barbera studios, which amazed the world with astonishing cartoons populated by quirky and unique characters. The exhibition showcases 246 original drawings, tracing the history of the TV series created by the cartoon studio, as revealed by the commentary and the work of three animation legends, known as the Three Tooners. The trio was invited to Florence to hold a special lecture for Nemo Academy and to receive their NEMOLAND LEGENDS 2019 award for their precious contribution to the world of Animation.
The book opens with bios of the three artists and photos of their entire careers, followed by Hanna-Barbera artwork by the Three Tooners and others (Dick Bickenbach, Iwao Takamoto, Alex Toth, others).
Foreword by Sandro Cleuzo.
