Welcome to The Animation History Bibliography!
In creating this bibliography there is a conscious effort to include any and all publications on the subject of animation; regardless of communal and scholarly reputation. If a title was available in North America and in English, it is included.
Titles are separated into groups of similar topics. These categorizations are but lines in the sand, meant for the reader to peruse easier and they are not meant to be taken as a definitive judgment of a book’s contents. Some titles could have been placed in more than one category, but they were only listed once. In the case of multiple authors, the authors are alphabetized by last name. In the cases of titles that are compendiums of articles by many authors, the editor(s) of the work is listed. In the case of periodicals, either the founder of the publication or the first Editor-in-Chief is listed.
An additional book listed under a title indicate a change in book name, but not content.
eBooks, Audiobooks, and Books on Media are included as proof of existence. However, due to the many different digital platforms available for downloading, as well as the creation and dissolvement of contractual timed exclusives, additional information made available is limited to release date, publisher, and Narrator (If applicable). It is up to the reader to discover current availability on the platforms and in the formats of your preferred choice.
Publications are written in the following format:
Author’s Last Name, First Name. Additional Authors Alphabetically (If present). Title of Publication. Type of Binding and Edition. Publisher. Year Published. ISBN10: XXXXXXXXXX. ISBN-13: XXXXXXXXXXXXX.
Additional Editions (If Applicable). Publisher. Year Published. ISBN-10: XXXXXXXXXX. ISBN-13: XXXXXXXXXXXXX.
