From the Allworth Press and the School of Visual Arts comes Animation: The Whole Story, by noted SVA animation professor Howard Beckerman, who's drawn the likes of Mighty Mouse, Heckle & Jeckle, Popeye and Winky-Dink for Terrytoons and Paramount Famous Studios. In the battle between digital vs. hand-drawn animation that often rages at animation schools, Beckerman believes what counts above all is not the medium but the art of storytelling, and this $24.95 paperback plumbs that art with admirable depth and lucidity. And for New York animation fans, on Tuesday, March 23, at 7 p.m., Beckerman will conduct a free sketching session at the Barnes & Noble on Sixth Avenue and 22nd Street. Call 212-727-1675 for more info.
