Best Books Of 2011

From Tiny To Tome, The Best Gift Books Of 2011

Its cover should look familiar. The first edition of The Art of Walt Disney appeared nearly 40 years ago, and despite its ample size, unapologetic serious-mindedness and inherently technical nature, it became a fixture in living rooms across America. It also inspired countless contemporary animators, among them John Lasseter, whose pioneering work at Pixar now extends the Disney animation tradition and is one of the subjects of this substantially expanded and revised reissue
