Review:

The Great and Powerful Mickey is perhaps the only shared muse of artists Charles Schulz, Andy Warhol, Maurice Sendak, Keith Haring, R. Crumb, and pop star Michael Jackson. This whimsical, often surprising collection of 100 full-color images reflects the diverse styles of world-renowned artists, illustrators, animators, sculptors, cartoonists, and designers--united in theme by the world's favorite rodent. John Updike explains in the introduction, "It's all in the ears. When Mickey Mouse was born, in 1928, the world of early cartoon animation was filled with two-legged zoomorphic humanoids, whose strange half-black faces were distinguished one from another chiefly by the ears." He goes on to point out that Mickey Mouse's ears--in defiance of three-dimensional space--are always shown as two perfectly round circles, no matter the angle at which he holds his head, and discloses that if it weren't for Disney's wife Lillian, Mickey might have been named Mortimer. Whether you're an art lover or Mickey Mouse fan, this compilation is sure to fascinate you.
