This guidebook explains basic knowledge of different objects of perceptions, including color, shape, space, and movement, as well as mysterious perceptual phenomena in a thought-provoking manner. Considering perception of motions in particular, the companion DVD promotes understanding of various motion phenomena that are understood differently in written form.

There are quite a few articles examining motions in animation within the field of cognitive psychology. However, there are only a small number of books available. Here, I prioritized readability for non-specialists in motor perception and chose books that would provide a vehicle for people interested in motions in animation, including psychology books—as well as those authored by animation producers—and excluding research articles. Books on the “uncanny valley,” which has recently attracted attention of the selector, included one written in English.
