I have good news! Walt's People - Volume 19 was finally released this week.

This is really an exceptional addition to the series. Some of the best pieces in the volume include: a short autobiography of Don Graham, the letters that Disney publicist Janet Martin sent from Latin America while traveling with "El Grupo" in 1941, a long and fascinating interview with "True-Life Adventures" cinematographer Lloyd Beebe, and an in-depth interview with Alan Coats.

They Drew as They Pleased Vol. 3: The Hidden Art of Disney's Late Golden Age (The 1940s - Part Two) is now available for pre-order on Amazon! It is 40 pages longer than the two previous volumes and focuses on Disney's Character Model Department.

The artists whose careers are discussed and whose art is displayed in this instalment are: Eduardo Sola Franco. Johnny Walbridge, Jack Miller, Campbell Grant, James Bodrero and Martin Provensen. If you were to buy only one volume in the series (why would you do this?) this would be the one to get.

I just stumbled upon this magazine. On page 60, you will find a good article by Willy Ley about the making on Man in Space.
