How cartoons are made...

Item # 667184

October 14, 1916

SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, New York, Oct. 14, 1916  The entire front page is taken up with an illustration captioned: "Animated Cartoons In the Making: Filming the Successive Drawings." showing a man doing just that. An inside page is entirely devoted to: "Animated Cartoons in the Making--How 16,000 Drawings are Prepared & Photographed in Producing 1000 Feet of Motion Picture Film" with related photos as well (see). This gets back to the earliest period of cartoon making for motion pictures and certainly a significant issue for any collector of cartoon, animation or film history.
Sixteen pages, partial embossed library stamp to a lower corner & minor loss to the lower left blank margin of the front leaf, generally nice condition.
