Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!
There's a great new book I want to tell you about called "A Brush with Disney" which is all about one of Walt Disney's "Grand Old Men", Herb Ryman.
Here's what Roy E. Disney, Vice Chairman of The Walt Disney Company, says about Herb:
"He was also truly a craftsman, in all the best sense of that word, and thus it's easy to see why Walt Disney picked Herb to create that first big panoramic 'map' of Disneyland, ...for my father to show prospective financiers. Walt knew that Herb would not just get the drawing right, but more importantly would get all the feeling right as well."
I highly recommend this book to all Disney fans! It is edited by Bruce Gordon & David Mumford who are Disney Imagineers who have written many other great Disney books.
If you are interested in this book, please get "A Brush with Disney: An Artist's Journey by Herbert Dickens Ryman" (click here) in hardcover, or you can get the collectible edition: numbered, limited edition, deluxe boxed version (click here). Either way you'll be getting it from the trustworthy folks at Amazon.com and helping out the FANtasEARS Disney Fan Club as well.
Your ol' pal,
