Currently in production: Jon Gibson and Chris McDonnell have started production on a new and complete art and history of Bakshi Productions book which will also cover the fine art, photography and drawings of Ralph Bakshi. It is early in the process right now so some initial details that they can share are that they have a major publisher to put the book out and they will be seeing these in people's hands in mid 2008. Jon and Chris are co-authoring the book and Chris will design it. They are grateful for the co-operation and contributions of Ralph and the entire Bakshi family -- without them they wouldn't have much of a book. Ralph's voice and interviews will be the backbone of the book telling the first-hand account of Bakshi Productions through the years. Sidebars with other animation legends, directors and people from Ralph's life will complete the picture. This book will be art-heavy and packed full. The production will be high-quality, hardcover, large, full-color, "coffee-table" style. Of course they will be releasing much more information and previews as they progress through the production, but they knew they should get the early word out to all Bakshi fans!
