On November 18, 1928, Walt Disney unveiled what would become one of the most recognisable global icons and true originals of the century, Mickey Mouse. Since then, Mickey has positively touched the lives of fans of all ages, all around the world.
The Art of Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse is a celebration of the true original icon, spanning the ninety years that Mickey Mouse has been entertaining audiences with heartfelt performances and humorous antics. The book begins with a comprehensive filmography, listing Mickey's animated performances in shorts, films, and television shows. This impressive resume is followed by an analysis of Mickey's milestones: the firsts he has attained, the achievements he has made, and the recognitions he has received throughout his life thus far. A special double gate-fold commemorates Mickey and Minnie's ninetieth anniversary with ninety pieces of artwork depicting the famous pair, from never-before-seen animation drawings to classic comic book covers. The final portion of the book is a jubilant commemoration comprised of new artwork, interpretations of Mickey Mouse contributed by the inspired minds at Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. Here, Mickey is reimagined in a variety of media ranging from digital renderings to traditional paintings, in styles as unique and different as the artists themselves.
