"... these books are a treasure trove of art that the samples
included here only touch on. If anything, they are more a
demonstration of these artists skills than their work for Disney.
There is also a lot to contemplate and ensure these artists are not
forgotten." -- SFcrowsnest
"What draws us in most about this book is, of course, the art, but also Didier's warts-and-all insights. He hasn't splashed Disney glitter over its history. Instead, he's given a true account of how these largely unknown artists and their commitment to their craft - even when it came into question - helped refine Disney's artistic style for years to come, securing their place in animation history in the process." -- ImagineFX
