The 1950s and 1960s at The Walt Disney Studios marked unprecedented stylistic directions brought on by the mid-century modern and graphic sensibilities of a new wave of artists. This volume explores the contributions of these creators, with special emphasis on the art of Lee Blair, Mary Blair, Tom Oreb, John Dunn, and Walt Peregoy. It includes never-before-seen images from Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and Sleeping Beauty and discusses Disney's first forays into television, commercials, space, science projects, and theme parks. With rare vintage photos of the creators, too.

Drawing on interviews and revealing hundreds of rediscovered images that inspired Disney's films during one of its most prolific eras, this volume captures the rich stories of the artists who brought the characters to life and helped shape the future of animation.

The Goldbergs, who wrote the foreword, have not only worked for Disney for several decades...they were friends with and worked with many of the artists profiled here. Eric created the Genii for Aladdin, and characters for The Princess and the Frog, Moana, the accademy-award winning short Paper Man and much more. He works for Disney--as the last hand-animator on their staff--and also teaches animation to digital filmmakers in Los Angeles.
