Susan Rubin, Animation: The Art and the Industry
The book is similar to Kit Laybourne's "Animation Book" from around the same time. It walks through techniques and process in a cursory manner.
Two things set it apart.
First, it's illustrated by the great Joey Ahlbum who must have still been at SVA.
Second, the last chapters are devoted to interviews with animation artists and producers. Some were up and comers -"assistant animator/former in-betweer" J. J. Sedelmaier, "animator" Candy Kugel, "airbrush artist/illustrator" Mark Kaplan. Others were veterans whose names are seldom mentioned today -producer Harold Friedman, director Stan Smith, cameraman John Rowholt.
