15 of Our Studio’s Favorite Creative Books

October is National Book Month!! Books are such an incredible thing, aren’t they? They can transport you somewhere else. They can teach you – maybe something about a skill or a subject, maybe even something about yourself. October seems a fitting month to curl up with a good book and a cup of something warm, don’t you think? If you’re interested in exploring creativity (from a heck of a lot of angles, including animation) we’ve got you covered. Happy reading!
