Lavishly illustrated with nearly 1,000 B&W illustrations and 22 hand-tipped color plates, this landmark course deserves a place on every cartoonist's bookshelf.

    Zim BookZim BookEdited by Stephen Worth and with a foreword by Ralph Bakshi, these books cover a broad range of subjects, from practical advice for aspiring artists to philosophical musings on what it means to be a cartoonist. Zim's infectious sense of humor and vividly observed caricatures leap off the page. This drawing course may just be the keystone document of American cartooning.

    These books are now being offered to the general public for $250 a set, and to members of ASIFA-Hollywood at a discounted price of $200 (plus $15 shipping and CA sales tax).

    As a special price for readers of the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive blog who are not yet members of ASIFA-Hollywood, we are offering a discounted bundle of both books and a year's membership in ASIFA-Hollywood for only $275.

    Shipping to Canada on both of these offers is an additional $17. International shipping is an additional $40. Proceeds from the sale of these books go to support the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive. ASIFA-Hollywood is a 501(c)(3) California non-profit organization, so your contribution may be tax deductible. (See your tax accountant for details.)
