If there's one book I'm excited about it's the print edition of Joe Murray's "Crafting a Cartoon". It details what goes on in television animation and how to make it.
It is being published by Random House and was originally an eBook published through Joe's website.
The eBook will be taken down in a manner of days. So you'll have to be very quick about it if you can't wait for the print edition to come out.
It also details on alternative method of getting a cartoon out if you don't want to deal with network executives.
