Dis­ney’s The Ar­chive Se­ries - Walt Dis­ney’s Nine Old Men: The Flip­books By Pete Doc­ter [Dis­ney Edi­tions, $60]

Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame -

This fan­tas­tic col­lec­tor’s dream was re­leased last year, but no­body sent us a copy to re­view here at the magazine, so I fi­nally found it at the lo­cal book­store and bought one for my­self. Se­ri­ously, how can you say no to this su­perb box, which in­cludes nine small-for­mat (6.3-inch by 6.8-inch) hard­cov­ers de­voted to draw­ings by Walt Dis­ney’s orig­i­nal an­i­ma­tors — Les Clark, Eric Lar­son, Frank Thomas, John Louns­bery, Ward Kim­ball, Ol­lie John­ston, Mark Davis, Wolf­gang Rei­ther­man and Milt Kahl? Each book brings to life an an­i­mated se­quence from our fa­vorite pics, ( Alice in Won­der­land, Dumbo, Fan­ta­sia, Peter Pan, Bambi, Lady and the Tramp, 101 Dal­ma­tians and Pinoc­chio) and in­cludes a brief in­tro­duc­tion about one of the Nine Old Men, penned by con­tem­po­rary artists such as Glen Keane, An­dreas Deja and Ron Cle­ments. This is the one we’d pick for the re­ally, re­ally spe­cial per­son with whom you want to spend Valen­tine’s Day!
