Today's breathtaking digital animation by the likes of Pixar may have been unimaginable to such moving-image pioneers as Eadweard Muybridge and Winsor McCay, but over the course of the last century animation has become one of the most popular and prevalent visual art forms. Watch Me Move presents an extensive selection of animated imagery created over the past 100 years, from Felix the Cat, Mickey Mouse and Betty Boop to Astro Boy, South Park and Avatar, and covers a wide range of techniques, including hand-drawn, stop-motion, computer animation and more experimental forms. Organized thematically, the book explores the emergence of animation, its well-loved characters, heroes and villains, its myths and fables, dramatic narratives and alternative realities. With essays by animation experts and biographies of the leading studios and animators, Watch Me Move is the definitive guide to the dynamic world of the animated image.
