Best Design Book of 2012

Roland Wilson's last book is a stunner.  Susan Lemieux Wilson edited a lifetime's worth of knowledge into the new book

Rowland B. Wilson's Trade Secrets: Notes on Cartooning and Animation.

I bought it at once and am going to be recommending it to my students. Wilson's color theory is specifically adpated for motion pictures, specifically animation. While his compositional tips are from an illustrator's perspective, they can still be applied to the animated image.

This is a wonderful book.

I bought the Kindle version (looks fantastic viewing through the Cloud reader on my 21" monitor). Fantastic book and fantastic artwork.
