Looks like there are a whole lot of books coming down the pike in the next few months, starting with a wave of computer animation titles in July. One, the second Digital Art Masters volume, is the only one to focus specifically on finished art, while the remainder are how-to guides to Houdini, 3ds Max, Flash, Lightwave and After Effects. A few reissues and new editions are also in the mix from September onward, including a new edition of Animated Films and the paperback version of Japanamerica, in September and November respectively. October's got a nice surprise, though, with a book called The Colored Cartoon: Black Representation in American Short Films—which I hope will tackle its subject matter with a bit more verve than That's Enough Folks, the only other book I'm aware of that exclusively focuses on the subject. Later in the month there's also Jerry Beck's Hanna-Barbera Treasury, 108 pages of finished and pre-production art, which should be just enough to tide us over until February's biography of legendary designer Maurice Noble.
