This is The Illusion of Life Disney Animation by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, c. 1981, Walt Disney Productions, 375 pages
"The most complete book on the subject ever written, this is the fascinating inside story by two, long-term Disney animators of the gradual perfecting of a relatively young and particularly American art form-- which no other movie studio has ever been able to equal." (Inside jacket)
The blue cloth cover with its gilt lettering is in pristine condition. There are two tiny dings on the dust jacket but it is otherwise in excellent condition. Aside from a bent corner on the yellow front page, the rest of the pages show virtually no wear. The overall condition of this book is excellent.
For any Disney fan, this book is simply a must-have! Note: this is a heavy book weighing over six pounds!
