WALT DISNEY FILM ARCHIVES: The Animated Movies 1921-1968DANIEL KOTHENSCHULTE Book Number: 88651 Product format: Hardback
A backstage bible into the Disney universe through rare archive footage and inside the studio, this is a bible for older children. From Alice and Mickey, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Lady and the Tramp, Fantasia, Dumbo, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmatians, The Sword In the Stone, Mary Poppins, Bambi, Winnie the Pooh and the Jungle Book, contributors include Brian Sibley and Charles Solomon. Editor Daniel Kothenschulte curates some of the most precious concept paintings and storyboards to reveal just how these animation triumphs came to life. Masterful cell set-ups provide highly detailed illustrations of famous film scenes, while rare pictures taken by Disney photographers bring a privileged insider's view to the studio's creative process. The major animation features each get its own focus chapter without forgetting less-familiar gems such as experimental short films like Silly Symphonies series and under-appreciated episodic musical films such as Make Mine Music and Melody Time. Really thick quality heavyweight pages, dripping with colour illustrations throughout, a very special treatment and an astonishing collection of animated cartoons including several from private collections. 512 heavyweight pages, 15.6 x 21.7cm. Brand new from Taschen, wraparound endpaper.
