As the D23 Expo is getting closer, I will be posting a few important reminders, starting with this one.
As you know, a few months ago an official non-profit association dedicated to the preservation of Disney History, the Hyperion Historical Alliance (HHA), released its first publication, the 2019 Hyperion Historical Alliance Annual. I serve as president of the HHA.
I am glad to announce that the HHA is now ready to launch its hard-cover monograph series.
The first volume in the series will be released in exclusivity at D23 Expo (it will become available on Amazon.com and at StuartNgBooks.com a month later). This first monograph is a hard-cover, 148-page-long, full-color, heavily-illustrated publication written by JB Kaufman about The Making of Walt Disney's Fun and Fancy Free and released with the authorization of The Walt Disney Company. You are seeing its cover for the very first time!
Most of the illustrations that this monograph contains have never been seen before in book form. I have a feeling that most of you will be blown away by it. And at $30, we have kept the cost very low (this is the beauty of being a non-profit).
It took close to ten years to make this monograph project a reality. This is really a major achievement.
The HHA will have a booth at D23 Expo, shared with Ryman Arts. The first monograph as well as the 2019 Annual will be available for all of you to purchase on the booth. Only a few limited copies will be available at the Expo.
There is a lot more to share regarding HHA's presence at the Expo, by the way: our members will give talks on the Disney Archives stage, we are planning some autograph sessions at the booth, etc.
I will mention all of this in upcoming announcements.
In the meantime, just remember: The booth is the Hyperion Historical Alliance / Ryman Arts booth at the D23 Emporium in Hall A and if you want to support the HHA and its efforts or keep updated about future publications, check out HHAPress.org. More soon.
