Don't miss this new website! Some marvelous material in there. And, of course, I can't wait for the book to be released.

 Will I enjoy the movie? Who knows? 

The book The Art of Lightyear for its part is excellent, like everything that Chronicle Books releases. (Needless to say I am biased ;-)

I am extremely sad to report that one of the foremost Italian Disney historians, Luca Boschi, recently passed away. RIP.

On June 24, 1935, during his visit to Europe, Walt attended a fundraiser at the Westminster Hospital. 

When I wrote "Disney's Grand Tour," I knew of only one photo of the event which I did include in the book. 

I just found another photo that I had never seen before. It is being sold on eBay at the moment but is way too expensive for me.

This just in from my friend Jeremie Noyer. Apparently this book will be released in the Spring this year. Here is the official blurb:

[From the theme parks to the Disney Hotels and shows, the designers of all these experiences are not only architects and engineers, but also artists – painters, illustrators, storyboarders, graphic designers, decorators, and model makers.


With The Art of Disneyland Paris, dive into the heart of the creation and evolution of Europe’s leading tourist destination through more than 300 photos, concepts and preparatory drawings made by Imagineers and artists of the Entertainment Department, over its 30-year history. From the first sketches to the projects to come, discover an art book like no other, both a souvenir album and a portfolio of passionate artists.]
