One Hundred Years of Cinema Animation

By Giannalberto Bendazzi

Publication date: 1994
Total pages: 514
ISBN: 0 86196 445 4
Price: £ 25.00


A comprehensive detailed history and critique of cinema animation produced around the world. Starting from 1888, Cartoons covers over 70 countries, 2000 animators, 3000 films and contains a great deal of information which has never before been published. Lavishly illustrated, this encyclopaedic account moves on to offer historical aspects of all animation – short and full-length films, directors, show business, cultural influences, trends, investments, production companies, TV series, computer animation and other technical developments.


‘This comprehensive history and critique of world animation ... is a wonderful encyclopaedic history of animation ... Cartoons is obviously going to become both a standard text in animation history and a basic reference work as well, a status it well deserves.
Harvey Deneroff, Society for Animation Studies Newsletter
