TASCHEN AMERICA L.L.C.
One of the most expansive illustrated publications on Disney animation, finally available in a compact edition. Walt Disney created a unique and unrivaled imaginative universe. Like scarcely any other classics of cinema, his astonishing collection of animated cartoons revolutionized storytelling on screen and enchant to this day across geographies and generations. This expansively illustrated publication on Disney animation gathers hundreds of images as well as essays by Disney experts, taking us to the beating heart of the studio's "Golden Age of Animation." We trace Disney's complete animation journey from the silent film era, through his first full-length feature Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
(1937) and Fantasia
(1940), right up to his last masterpieces Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree
(1966) and The Jungle Book
(1967). With extensive research conducted through the historical collections of the Walt Disney Company, as well as private collections, editor Daniel Kothenschulte curates some of the most precious concept paintings and storyboards to reveal just how these animation triumphs came to life.
