Not being an artist myself, I am usually no fan of books teaching the techniques of animation. So why am I looking forward to buying next year Prepare to Board! by Nancy Beiman? First because I admire Nancy, a former Disney artist and one of the best animation teachers in the field.

But also and mostly (from my point of view) because it will contain never-published-before interviews with T. Hee, Ken O'Connor and Ken Anderson. I want to read those!

Dear Didier,

My book also contains interviews with Maurice Noble, Tex Avery, and a short quote from Alice Davis. It's not really a Disney-centric book. It's also designed to be read by a non-artist, or a beginning artist; and it was written to be entertaining as well as informative. I look forward to hearing your comments on the book when it is available next March.
Thanks for the nice plug!

best wishes

Nancy Beiman
