    Art and Inventions of Max Fleischer SC (2017 McFarland) American Animation Pioneer 1-1ST

    1st printing. By Ray Pointer and Jerry Beck. The history of animated cartoons has for decades been dominated by the accomplishments of Walt Disney, giving the impression that he invented the medium. In reality, it was the work of several pioneers. Max Fleischer, inventor of the Rotoscope technique of tracing animation frame by frame over live-action footage, was one of the most prominent. Where Disney reflected a Midwestern sentimentality, Fleischer presented a sophisticated urban attitude with elements of German Expressionism and organic progression. This book covers his life and work and the history of the studio that bore his name, with previously unpublished artwork and photographs. Softcover, 278 pages, PC/PB&W. Cover price $39.95.
