Hanna-Barbera Treasury

Here's an interesting publication that doesn't hit shelves until this October,
The Hanna-Barbera Treasury, written by Jerry Beck, has been set for a October 23rd release date.

"The Hanna-Barbera Treasury celebrates the legacy of Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera through more than five decades of rare drawings, storyboards, concept art, and memorabilia from studio archives and private collections. It includes more than 24 removable artifacts and facsimile reproductions, as well as photographs, sketches, comic book covers, brochures, and posters. Vintage art, rare merchandising images, retro product packages, and archival newspaper and magazine ads transport the reader back in time to an era when a brave new medium invaded our living rooms to create a new art form: the prime-time family cartoon."

There has yet to be an official announcement of this book, but with Jerry Beck at the helm, it should be a great piece of animation history!
