The Simp­sons Fam­ily His­tory

Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame - By Matt Groen­ing [Abrams, $35]

Think you’re a walk­ing En­cy­clo­pe­dia of Spring­field? Do your fa­vorite drink­ing games in­volve chal­leng­ing your friends to ID Bob Ter­williger quotes? Then this chrono­log­i­cal com­pen­dium of Simp­sons fam­ily lore is for you. Join show cre­ator Matt Groen­ing page-by-page as he re­veals facts and turn­ing points in the life of and its beloved, flawed stars.

Weigh­ing in at three and a half pounds of his­tory and trivia, even the most die-hard fans will find they’ve missed a hid­den mo­ment or two over the show’s 25-year his­tory. And each step on the jour­ney is il­lus­trated by art taken di­rectly from the source. This an­niver­sary tome is a great salute to Amer­ica’s fa­vorite an­i­mated fam­ily.
