A valentine to an era of innovation, this volume is a large-format, general-audience book, reflecting the creative style that Walt Disney and his artists contributed to the period. More than just an entertainer, Walt Disney was an entrepreneur, and he was true to his times - when modernism would define the look of the 1950s and 60s. Starts with Walt Disney being influenced heavily by California, and ends with his eye turning to Florida. Features behind-the-scenes photos of Disneyland, discussing the design of the park. Another is devoted to the 1964 World's Fair, and getting "It's a Small World" approved. The art and animation of Walt Disney Studios is a theme throughout, including work of illustrators Mary Blair & Ward Kimball. A total of 26 chapters, on a loose timeline, present never-before-published artwork from the Disney archives. Other chapters cover Houses of the Future, Magic Highways, Television Phenomenon, Space Exploration, City of Tomorrow. A keepsake book, for all...
