If you’re interested in taking your animation skills to the next level, Eric Goldberg’s book is perfect. It’s packed with lots of information on character construction, staging, composition and it comes with a CD. The book is light but heavy with content. It’s an easy read. However this is not for beginners, its loaded with examples that require a basic level of understanding of animation. This is a book every animator should have on their bookshelf. Pick it up at Amazon. Most bookstores probably won’t have it in stock and buying online is cheaper.
