Free UK delivery on orders £35 + over

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 draws on interviews and reveals never-before-seen images from Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Peter Pan and Sleeping Beauty, capturing the rich stories of the artists who brought the characters to life and helped to shape the future of animation.
