Designer Todd Oldham, who has compiled impressive monographs on mid-century illustrators and designers like Charley Harper and Alexander Girard, looks to have made something special again with his book on Ed Emberley. Throughout his fifty-year career, Emberley has written and illustrated more than 100 books, the vast majority of them out of print, but his biggest legacy may be his dozen or so how-to-draw books, which have made drawing easy and fun for multiple generations of chidlren.
While Emberley has only tenuous connections to the animation world, his books have influenced animators alongside other creative people. Oldham compiled the book in collaboration with Emberley himself and artist Caleb Neelon. It’ll be published next month by Ammo Books and can be pre-ordered on Amazon for $31.21.
