The story of Walt Disney and the company he built based entirely on the creations of his extraordinary imagination. It covers Walt's early career, including Mickey Mouse's 1928 debut in "Steamboat Willie", all of the animated feature films from "Snow White" to "Fantasia 2000", live action films, and the theme parks such as Disneyland. The author was granted access to archives and people, interviewing hundreds of Disney staff members past and present, from chairman Michael Eisner, to the animators, to the imagineers who design the theme parks. Illustrations include concept art, background paintings, film stills and views of theme park attractions, all selected in consultation with the artists and animators themselves. This book has been revised and updated to include all major projects since the last edition, including "Toy Story 2", "Tarzan" and "Fantasia 2000".

From the Publisher:

The Art of Walt Disney is an enduring classic-a book that has sold nearly 600,000 copies in two lavish hardcover editions. Now, for the first time, Abrams is proud to announce an affordable condensed paperback version of this remarkable book. Drawing on unfettered access to Disney artists and archives, Christopher Finch chronicles every facet of Disney art-animation, live-action, and theme parks-from Mickey's 1928 debut in Steamboat Willie to the forthcoming Fantasia 2000. All the major milestones receive full coverage, including recent projects-Toy Story, the Broadway Lion King, Mulan, and Disney's Animal Kingdom, among others-that don't appear in the 1995 hardcover edition. With 250 striking illustrations and a wonderfully inexpensive price, this will be an irresistible gift for Disney fans everywhere. 250 illustrations, 150 in full color, 911/2 x 1111/4" 1Christopher Finch is the author of more than 20 books, including Abrams' Norman Rockwell's America. ROY DISNEY is the nephew of Walt Disney and vice chairman of the board of the Walt Disney Company

About the Author:

Christopher Finch was born on the island of Guernsey and studied painting at Chelsea Art School in London. In the mid-sixties he began writing criticism, becoming a contributing editor to Art & Artists and British Vogue. During that period, he wrote extensively about American and British contemporary art, especially pop art. In 1967, he joined the curatorial staff of the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. In 1969 he resumed his freelance writing career in New York, where he remained until 1990 when he moved to Los Angeles. He is a regular contributor to Architectural Digest and is the author of more than twenty books, including The Art of the Lion King (Hyperion, 1994), Jim Henson: The Works (Random House, 1993), Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Watercolors (Abbeville, 1988 and 1991), and Norman Rockwell's America (Abrams, 1975).
