Lovely: Ladies of Animation: 01/19/16
Lovely: Ladies of Animation by Lorelay Bove (et al) is collection of essays by six women currently working in animation. As it's a folio, there's lots of room for beautifully reproduced samples of each artists' work.
The essays are pretty much free form covering whatever the artist thought was most important. What this means is that to an uninitiated reader — one not already familiar with the artist — will learn only a small piece of her career and artistic background.
There's an appendix that includes brief biographies of each author. That's helpful but it would have been better placed in an introduction or perhaps as introductory paragraphs before each essay.
