This book showcases 80 of the world's most prominent artist and studios. Included glorious pages of art work, biographies and contact information. Unfortunately the writeup is short with an average of 5 paragraphs. There's also translation into another language (I've no idea what) just after the English write up.
The abundant of prints, cartoons, film stills and other screen shots makes this more of an art book resource. Because these animations contained all sorts of genre, the variety of style is great for inspiration. This is not just a study of animation, but a study of medium that can be used on screen.
For the price of an art book, it's well worth the money. The biographies are just goodies.
The hardcover version of the book doesn't come with the DVD though.
