    A must have for Disney admirers and those who are not!!

    For people who admire Disney's work and for those who don't this is a great book. Walt's work can not fit in any book, but this one managed to explain and decribe his work in a best possible way. You won't find many information on Walt's personal life, but the book is called The ART of Walt Disney. Lots of photos of original drawings, cels, backgrounds are included, which makes the text you read easy to understand and see it in reality. A must have for anyone who cares about culture, because Disney has changed the culture and this book explains it accurately. After reading this book, Disney admirers will just love his art more and those who are not, will become.

    Terrific book on the Art of Disney

    This book is packed with photographs, drawings and artwork from Walt Disney's life and from the Walt Disney Company. In addition to the all the images, there is a lot of good information about Walt Disney and the Disney Company in the text. Even the cover of this book is well done and attractive. Anyone could feel proud to have this book sitting on his or her coffee table. The book was well researched and contains a lot of historical information about Walt Disney and the Disney Company. In terms of information on Walt, it is not as complete as some of the biographies of Disney that I read. However, it is a very good overview of Disney's life and a good chronology of the Disney Company. I appreciated the way that the artwork was coordinated with the text and well explained. There is artwork and photographs from Disney¿s very early days all the way through to the 1990s. The author did not seem to miss anything in this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys the art of Walt Disney and the Disney Company and would like to know both a little better.
