Flipping Pages: Learning Animation Through Books
René Walling · From fps #4 · September 1, 2006 | Many animators recall how they started their first animation in their youthful days creating flipbooks using their school manuals. Another way to learn animation with books is by reading books on how to do it. From photocopied documents created by instructors for their classes to manuals written by animation legends , there are countless books out there that can show you how to animate.

Many books on the history of animation will also include some information on techniques and methods. Others focus on the methods, equipment, and techniques used to animate and may or may not feature examples from released films. This article will cover some of the better ones in the latter category.
