They Drew As They Pleased Vol 4: The Hidden Art of Disney's Mid-Century Era (Disney Art Books, Gifts for Disney Lovers) (Disney x Chronicle Books) Hardcover – Illustrated, August 7, 2018

by Didier Ghez (Author), Eric Goldberg (Foreword), Susan Goldberg (Foreword)

The 1950s and 1960s at The Walt Disney Studios marked unprecedented stylistic directions brought on by the mid-century modern and graphic sensibilities of a new wave of artists. This volume explores the contributions of these heroes with special emphasis on the art of Lee Blair, Mary Blair, Tom Oreb, John Dunn, and Walt Peregoy. It includes never-before-seen images from Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and Sleeping Beauty and discusses Disney's first forays into television, commercials, space, and science projects—even the development of theme parks. Drawing on interviews and revealing hundreds of rediscovered images that inspired Disney's films during one of its most prolific eras, this volume captures the rich stories of the artists who brought the characters to life and helped shape the future of animation.
This year The Walt Disney Company will be celebrating a huge birthday milestone. The Disney100 Celebration commemorates the storytellers who have brought generations the wonder and magic of Disney and how these beloved characters and stories connect us films from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, 20th Century, and National Geographic.
