I realize that Made of Pen & Ink: Fleischer Studios The New York Years is not a book about Disney, but I know that many of you will want to know about its recent release. I just ordered it and will find out soon how good it is.

I can't wait for Heritage Auctions' upcoming auction in a few days. 

Two of my favorite oddball items are these two Mickey Mouse drawings attributed to Tom Wood for the unreleased Red Book magazine spread Mickey Mouse on Inflation.

I am really looking forward to Pixar's Elemental and I will definitely want to pick up The Art of Elemental when it is released by Chronicle Books.

When I received The Disney Animation Renaissance yesterday, I first read the short biography of the author. I learned that Mary E. Lescher worked as a cameraperson and scene planner for Walt Disney Feature Animation. I also discovered that she passed away back in 2019 and will not be able to see her book released, which I found to be very sad.

Especially because her history of Disney's Floridian studio, based on dozens of first-hand interviews, is a fascinating one and deserves to be kept among the best books about recent Disney history. I can't wait to read it from cover to cover.

This has been a really good year for Disney history.

I am not sure if I will like the movie Strange World, but what I can already tell you is that I love the book The Art of Strange World, which contains some stunning artwork by Paul Felix, Mike Gabriel, Craig Elliott and Don Hall, but also by Larry Wu, Tadahiro Uesugi and Scott Watanabe, whose style I adore.
