If you love poster art, this oversized collection of Disney attraction posters is a book you'll want to add to your collection. These samples depict some of the wonderful rides and show what awaits a visitor to any of the Disney theme parks.

Disneyland began using posters in 1956 to disseminate information about the newest attractions and to hype the existing ones. Whether it is proclaiming one can have a 'true-life adventure' on the Jungle Cruise, or announcing the opening of Cars Land, each of these posters offers a colorful, eye-catching feast for the eyes.

As you page through the book you'll discover posters from every decade. The art also mirrors the evolution of style, and design techniques which have changed over the years. Posters from Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland are featured along with similar pieces from the California and Florida parks.

While some posters fill an entire page, others are paired in smaller groupings and show how the art changed for a particular attraction over the years.

It may seem to be a tad pricey, but once you see this collection I think you'll agree it is really a bargain considering the dazzling art it contains.
