Prime Time for Art Books

Animation Magazine - - Holiday Gift Guide -

It’s that spe­cial time of year, when we start fan­ta­siz­ing about buy­ing all those hot, new an­i­ma­tion and comic-book-re­lated cof­fee ta­ble books in stores. Among the many beau­ti­fully pro­duced ti­tles avail­able to fans this sea­son is the lovely

Tinker Bell: An Evo­lu­tion by Mindy John­son. This lovely 192-page Dis­ney Edi­tions hard­cover takes read­ers back to the ori­gins of J.M. Bar­rie’s feisty fairy and pro­vides a com­pre­hen­sive look at how the team at Dis­ney pre­served the char­ac­ter’s essence through the orig­i­nal an­i­mated Peter Pan movie and her solo adventures in the Dis­neyToon Stu­dios movies. It will be re­ally hard to say no to sev­eral of the glossy num­bers the team at Fan­ta­graph­ics have pre­pared for toon fans this sea­son: How can we re­sist the glo­ri­ous Walt Dis­ney’s Don­ald Duck Christ­mas Trea­sury Gift Box Set by Carl Barks or Floyd Got­tfred­son’s two­vol­ume Mickey Mouse Color Sun­days Gift Box Set. Don’t even get us started on how much we

are crav­ing The Com­plete Peanuts 1987-1990 Gift Box Set (Vols. 19-20). Se­ri­ously, if you give any comic-book or toon fan any of th­ese ti­tles for the hol­i­days, you’ll make a true friend for life!
