Can't find that film on video anywhere?

This book will help you solve that problem.

In the age of video, nearly every film ever made is available on video somewhere. The only problem is finding it. This book lists, both by title and producer, nearly 3000 animated films, the sources of their video copies, and the sources' telephone and facsimile numbers and postal, e-mail and internet addresses, where applicable. Included are many hard-to-find films on video and on laserdisc, both new and out of print. This is the only source of information you will need to track it down. An added bonus is a listing of more than 200 films that have won major prizes at animation festivals and/or placed on animation polls.
