[beautiful as-new copy, no discernible wear to either book or jacket]. (B&W and color photographs, cartoon art) SIGNED by the author (signature only) on the half-title page. "This is the surprising story of the pioneering cartoon studio UPA (United Productions of America). Throughout the 1950s, a group of artists ran a business that broke all the rules, pushing animated films beyond the fluffy fantasy of the Walt Disney Studio and the crash-bang anarchy of Warner Bros. Instead, UPA's films were innovative and graphically bold -- the cartoon equivalent to modern art. [This book] is the first book-length study to chronicle the rise and fall of this unique American enterprise." Includes Select Bibliography and Select Filmography. Signed by Author
