In the 100 years since the birth of
Walt Disney in 1901, the world has undergone a spellbinding
transformation - and has discovered the magic of believing. We
discovered that if we believe, the world can turn into a place
filled with magic and wonder - a place where animals can talk, a
place where good and evil are at constant odds in magical lands. We
owe much of the credit for this metamorphosis to a one-time farm-boy
and the company he founded.
During Walt's lifetime and after
his death, the company never ceased to forge ahead, breathing life
into the surreal landscapes and characters of its films, tugging at
the heartstrings of millions through its television productions, and
creating in its theme parks some of the most popular, exhilarating
and educational tourist attractions in the world.
Readers will join in a nostalgic,
year-by-year celebration of the birth, development and success of
the Walt Disney Company, shown through the artistic accomplishments
that have made an entertainment empire. Having sold more than 26,000
copies in hardcover, this handsome volume features a museum's worth
of classic photos plus rare and never-before-seen artwork.
