finally--"Donald Duck's Safety Book"



coming soon!


I love the drawings by
Huey, Dewey and Louie...
For the record- I wasn't curious about gas and electricity the way most kids seem to have been in the '50s.

"Mickey Mouse's Summer Vacation"


Germund von Wowern was kind enough to send me these scans of this wonderful Disney book. Thanks for sharing this with us Germund! Now let's enjoy it--From 1948, illustrated by Dick Moores of Gasoline Alley fame.[...]

Here's another 'Woody Woodpecker' Whitman Tell-A-Tale Book from 1951. I love the large cast of secondary characters in this one, including a 'Lucky Rabbit', who at this point in his career was lucky to get any work at all.Lot's of beautiful rendering in this one, too. Enjoy![...]

NOT Coming Soon...


I decided to hold off on this one, the artwork just didn't jazz me. I like to see a little thick and thin in illustration, so I decided to post Al Taliaferro's masterful story art from "Donald Duck and the Hidden Gold" instead.

Maybe we'll get around to this one at a later date.

"Pinocchio" 1939...


In my humble opinion this is one of the truest storybook adaptations ever created for Pinocchio. The artwork has the same subtle touch as the film. Look at the beautiful rendering effects in the scene with the Blue Fairy. The great acting in the sequence where Gepetto carries off his assumed mortally wounded child. Amazing artwork and heartfelt storytelling.Scanned from a well-worn copy.(All images TM & © Disney)[...]
