Bibliography

I don't run this site as a profession; I do it as a hobby (one which my wife claims is more of an obsession.) Suffice it to say, I don't have the access to animation libraries and archives that others do, and if this website is a success it's been by "standing on the shoulders of giants" so to speak. So, I give you this bibliography of resources that I've used in compiling this site and invite the reader to consult them for further reading.
