CARTOON BOOKS


You can always use a good cartoon book to learn how to draw a cartoon, that is, if the web don't do it for you. I've made up list of books showing you exactly how to draw your own cartoon of any kind.

An unusual relationship between word and image is developed within the pages of books. For some people, books teach history lessons, for others, they are simple ways of relaxation and amusement, a way of access to fantasy, adventure and horror stories.

Nowadays, books became a widely accessible commercial way of expression in the form of visual narratives. They are tailored to specific loyal audiences. These can exchange views on the latest editions or simply talk about them.

People have also access to more technically sophisticated books. Better printing techniques and paper of higher quality are currently increasing these books’ value.

More and more cartoon fans amuse themselves searching for the best books for their collections. They go to stores or they surf online, searching for the best books related to subjects they know or they want to discover. Usually they look for old books, limited editions, no longer available on the market, so popular decades ago. For them, the period in which these cartoons were conceived is very important and they bring to mind their childhood.

A list of great sites to get Cartoon Books:
www.amazon.com
  Our famous old Amazon website has any and all books you can think of. If you're looking for a collectors book or a new character - Amazon  has it.
www.milehighcomics.com
  I’m impressed with this site because they sure have a rather huge collection of famous comic books. Their site isn’t much to look at, but I think their effort went into having a huge collection of comic books, actually, anyone you can think of, and not just having a pretty site with only advertisements.
www.cartoonbank.com
This is an online store that offers many different books in addition to many New Yorker editions, prints and covers available for sale.

Many of these cartoons has changed their setting into television cartoons, and characters became more and more popular. Some of the old characters are still very popular and producers are struggling in making new episodes. Where can a cartoon book collector find books? One can find them in the flea markets, other collectors that sell their collections, book stores, antique stores, auctions and online sources.

Nowadays, more and more collectors find what they are looking for surfing online and in this manner they choose what kind of the best cartoon books to buy. Our childhood cartoon characters will always stay with us.

They have inspired us to great things, and to our parents’ heartache not-so-great things. If you were and maybe still are one of the collectors of comic books, you may want to check out of the listed sites. I have found quite a few sites that have an extensive collection of comic books for sale.
