This just in from Michael Crawford:

[I hope you are well. I just wanted to let you know that I've started digitizing my collection of documents and ephemera and uploading them to a centralized location at the Internet Archive. My hope is to provide an accessible archive of these things for everyone, especially as they have become harder to find and much more expensive to acquire through eBay and other places.

Everything has been scanned at high resolution and converted to OCR PDFs, so people can search for keywords. Hopefully it'll prove useful or at least interesting to some folks.

It all can be found here]

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.
