Let's admit it, the catalog of the exhibition currently taking place in New Orleans (Nov. 15, 2009 to March 14, 2010) is beautiful but is not a "must-have" as it does not contain much in terms of never-seen-before material.

Within its 120 pages there are 5 items, though, that caught my attention as I believe no other book ever featured them: a sketch of the Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs by Ferdinand Horvath; a concept painting of Cinderella by Bianca Majolie; two small concept studies from Sleeping Beauty by Joe Rinaldi; and a fascinating concept paiting of Belle by Mel Shaw. Having access to those four items justified the $20 I spent on this catalog, but I realize I am in a minority.
