"Animation is a phenomenal and phenomenally useful survey of animation in the United States. Editor Scott Curtis and his contributors have artfully examined American animation in its many forms--commercial and fine art, analog, and digital, full and limited--and grounded their insights into the art and craft of the cartoon in very specific historical, aesthetic, and technological circumstances. Rich in detail and nuance, the result is a compendium of carefully crafted essays that are an instructive and enjoyable read for animation fans and an excellent companion in the classroom."--Nicholas Sammond "author of Birth of An Industry: Blackface Minstrelsy and the Rise of American Animation "
