This exquisite over-sized volume showcases over 200 caricatures of Disney animation and other franchise characters. Following the lead of the legendary Al Hirschfeld, the iconic portrait artist whose line drawings became famous in the 1920s and 1930s, Disney supervising animator Eric Goldberg evokes the playful style of Hirschfeld in these black and white drawings that were originally created for a new display at the Shanghai Disney Resort in China.

Reminiscent of the Hirschfeld caricatures of Broadway and Hollywood notables gracing the walls of Sardi's in New York City and Hollywood's Brown Derby, these images have now been collected in this collector's edition so they can be enjoyed by a much wider audience.

Beginning with Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Mickey Mouse, the caricatures include scores of Disney movie characters and cover films up to the Pixar period (Toy Story, Cars, and Monsters, Inc.).

Disney fans and those interested in animation art will find this attractive book a welcome addition to their home libraries. David Bossert's informative 39 pages of text enhances the collection of large caricatures and completes the package, making it not only a feast for the eyes but also a volume that delves into the story behind this special project.
