Between the classic films of Walt Disney and the televised animation revolution of the 1960s was a critical decade in animation design. Amid Amidi, publisher of the influential "Animation Blast" magazine and Cartoon Brew blog charts the evolution of the modern style in animation, which abandoned the preferred "lifelike" anthopomorphic look for a more sophisticated and often abstract approach. In this way, animation design of the time has much in common with the modern movements in painting and graphic design. Gathering hundreds of rare and forgotten sketches, model boards, cels, and film stills, "Cartoon Modern" is a thoroughly researched, eye-popping, and delightful account of perhaps the most critical era of animation design.
