If you look closely at the Blogger Friends list here at the Cartoons On Film blog, you might notice an inconspicuous link titled 'Tralfaz.' The blog is run by one Don M. Yowp, and it's relatively new--its oldest posts date to 2011. But it's filled with a lot of great material for the casual and serious animation historian alike, and there one can find awesome trade paper stills and other info that has been carefully culled from digitized volumes of historic film publications.
As 2012 comes to a close, I wanted to highlight several excellent posts on the Tralfaz blog from this year; several of which are related to my intense interest in silent animation. Check these out, and bookmark the blog!
