Reviewed by David Blackall

Using case studies, Drawing Insight is best described as a stimulator and provider of ideas for the process and design of animated film and video. Potential animators and those interested in animation's communicative powers are granted a delightful journey through many aspects of film animation and its place as a universally understood communication tool. The book's contributors, from a range of cultural backgrounds, have successfully shown the importance of animation in global communication, particularly in relation to the role UNICEF plays in providing information about health and social issues to marginalised communities.
