The original edition cover

The Animator's Survival Kit: A Manual of Methods, Principles, and Formulas for Classical, Computer, Games, Stop Motion, and Internet Animators (ISBN 0-5712-0228-4) is a book by award-winning animator and director Richard Williams about various aspects of animation.[1] The book includes techniques, advice, tips, tricks, and general information on the history of animation.

As the title implies, the book is helpful for several fields of animation, not just traditional animation. It has been praised by many as being one of the best books on animation available.[1]

A 16-volume DVD box set—The Animator's Survival Kit – Animated—has also been created to combine the book with footage from Richard Williams' masterclasses and additional animation of the examples from the book.[2]

A revised edition, titled The Animator's Survival Kit – Expanded Edition (ISBN 0571238343), will be released by the end of 2009.[2]
