Animation Resources - Essential Reading
These books are a must have for animators.

Animators Survival Kit - Richard Williams
When I first discovered this book, it was like hitting the jackpot and finding treasure everywhere! Best standalone book on animation that covers all the core principles.

The Illusion of Life: Disney Animation - Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston
Great insight to the wonders of Disney Animation.

The Artists's Complete Guide to Facial Expression - Gary Faigin
This book completely changes the way I perceive facial expressions. Incredibly detailed and full of great references. Highly recommended!

Animation Resources - Recommended Reading

Film Directing Shot by Shot: Visualizing from Concept to Screen - Steve Katz
Learning how to stage your shots and storyboarding are a great way to improve your animation! This book is more film oriented, but it sure helps to learn from that perspective.

Drawn to Life - Walt Stanchfield
Some really good advice on 2D drawings, gestures and (some) animation.
