    Terzo capitolo di questa bellissima serie di libri dedicata agli animatori Disney. Questo volume si concentra sul Character Model Department ed è molto interessante. Ho amato come sempre la grande cura nel riportare la vita e la carriera di ogni nome presente e soprattutto i disegni d'archivio.

    Another excellent volume, this one focusing on artists who worked on Pinocchio, Fantasia, and , along with The Wind in the Willows (which later became half of The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad) and Saludos Amigos, early designs for Peter Pan, and more. Of particular interest are the wonderfully absurd creatures Johnny Walbridge created for Alice in Wonderland's Tulgey Wood sequence, and the sad drama of Eduardo Sola Franco's association with the studio's abandoned Don Quixote.

    This book is a beautiful collection of art and stories about the people made their artistic contributions to the Walt Disney Company in the 1940s. As a Disney aficionado, I was already familiar with a few of the artists, but I was happy to learn some new faces and the stories and pictures behind them. A must for Lovers of Disney and Animation.

    A look at the careers of a number of illustrators and animators who worked for Disney in the early years. Some omissions. Fun to see the drawings and sketches.

    Such interesting people worked at Disney and they all created such beautiful art. I'm torn between loving how much biographical information is included and wanting more pages to be dedicated to the gorgeous art.
