Cartoon Modern


3 of 5 stars
What’s this?

Amid Amidi’s recently launched companion site to his book “Cartoon Modern: Style and Design in 1950s Animation.” In case you missed that one, published two years ago, it’s an illuminating exploration of the mostly forgotten and/or under-appreciated talents that reinvented postwar cartoons as expressions of Modern abstraction. The result is a school of visual rendering that’s remembered with great fondness by many. Also, don’t forget Amidi’s Cartoon Brew, which is also excellent.
