These books are a personal ongoing source of study and inspiration; since I buy lots of them, I'll keep posting new titles and personal reviews here when possible. 

All books are listed in casual order.

Book I love n.8

A book on production design for animation which is really for every artist, illustrator, comic artist,  painter and that’s basically because it’s all about fundamental principles of design and composition at the base of the visual language. There’s a lot of art from Disney’s classics and the artist himself is the designer of “Mulan”. He takes you along his storyboarding and staging process, composition, color and style decision making, all done with the support of wonderful art. Language is simple and for everybody.  I consider this book an essential part of my educational bookshelf, I keep it on my desk and read it again and again...
