I just received yesterday the catalog of the Disney - Art of Storytelling exhibition which is currenty being displayed at The Nordic Watercolor Museum in Skärhamn, Sweden from March 20 to September 4, 2016.

This huge catalog, written by Tracey Miller-Zarneke and released in a bilingual version (Swedish / English) is a pure beauty and contains quite a lot of artwork that I had never seen before, with my favorite pieces being the concept drawings created for The Pied Piper of Hamelin, Pecos Bill and Robin Hood. Sheer delight, but unfortunately extremely difficult to get a hold of except if you know someone in Skärhamn, Sweden.

Certainly no comparison to the catalog, but check out the free exhibition audio guide available for iOS and Android: Disney's Art of Storytelling - guided tour.

The guide consists of short narrations (~1:30) on the different exhibition subjects: Myths, Legends, Fables, Tall Tales and Fairy Tales. Total play time is approx. 35 minutes.
Each chapter also shows a zoomable picture of a matching exhibition wall with images or sketches.

Although the app keeps crashing on my iPhone it's worth a listen.

They have a online store and I have just emailed them if it is possible to send this to Germany because you can only choose Sweden as shipping options at the moment.

Greetings from Germany
