Of all the things that have been scanned from books and old papers that show up on the blogs, I haven't seen much about the 1942 book, The Art of Walt Disney, by Robert Feild. Known of it for years, looked at friends' copies, but never owned it myself. Not for lack of looking, back in the day of used book stores, etc.
I finally broke down and got me one. Was very easy, after all.
But here's why: I have still, to this day, a number of handouts that were given to us in first year Animation class at Sheridan College. And they're all still great, full of good info. Among them were a few sheets showing layout and drawing and composition tips. These have been the best bits of stuff on layout I have ever seen in any book, of all the books written on animation. There are things that even Loomis doesn't talk about.
I was always sure they were from the Feild book.
But they're not in the copy I bought.
It's a first edition: Collins, 1942.
Is there another edition? Is this one abridged?
So, question to Dear Readers: anyone help me here; Where are these from?
