Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager for Disney Parks and Resorts, announced yesterday the highly-anticipated Poster Art of the Disney Parks book has arrived at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
In his August 7 post, Miller shared the book is now available in select locations at both resorts, and to celebrate its arrival, there will be a special event on August 18 at The Disney Gallery inside Disneyland.
The book has been in development for four years and required extensive research with current and former artists. Poster Art of the Disney Parks celebrates all the poster art seen at Disney Parks worldwide, not just at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. For fans of the international Disney Parks, this is a unique opportunity to learn more about designers and the artwork that adorns Tokyo Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris.
Disney history buffs will appreciate the attention to detail this book includes — from Pantone color matching to the personal anecdotes and unseen poster concepts from noted Disney Legends like Rolly Crump and Sam McKim.
Poster Art of the Disney Parks will be available at select locations including:
- 20th Century Music Company — Main Street, U.S.A.
- Disneyana — Main Street, U.S.A.
- Disney Gallery — Main Street, U.S.A.
