Now that D23 Expo is over, I am finally allowed to write about the Disney history book of the century, Marc Davis In His Own Words: Imagineering the Disney Theme Parks by Chris Merritt and Pete Docter.

In short: this book is mind-blowing. It is the best Disney history art book I have ever seen. It is 750-pages long, 95% of which are focused on Marc Davis' contributions to WED (now Walt Disney Imagineering). In his research, Chris has left no stone un-turned and has focused, on purpose, on artwork that has never been seen or has rarely been seen before. He also covers all of the abandoned projects that Marc tackled.

Spectacular does not even start to describe this book. This is the definition of a "must have" from my standpoint. How will anyone be able to top what has been achieved here is beyond me.

Run to get this book.
