    What: Meet Disney Imagineers and 'Poster Art of the Disney Parks' Book Signing
    When: Saturday, September 8th, from 4:00 to 6:00

    'Poster Art of the Disney Parks' is an 11x14 inch, 144-page hardcover with over 300 color illustrations. This large book is a lush compendium of posters from Disney theme parks around the globe, along with concept art and a lively narrative about the development of these stunning posters!


    • The book was in development for four years!
    • There are close to 300 posters and poster concepts in the book.
    • Almost all of the original 1950s Disneyland posters were re-scanned for this book, allowing them to be printed with accurate colors for the first time since the original silk-screens were displayed in the Park.
    • There are several "never before seen" posters including a very special poster courtesy of Drew Struzan who did the artwork for the Indiana Jones Adventure.
    • The authors conducted extensive research, interviewing close to 20 people, including current and former artists.


    This awesome coffee table art book is sure to please generations of Disney theme park fans. It is not to be missed and will be a great gift for the holidays.

    We are honored that our friend Tony Baxter has agreed to come to our store for the release of this phenomenal book, meet our customers and Disney fans, and sign this book along with the authors and other Imagineers.

    Disney fans will have the opportunity to meet and talk to:


    • Disney Imagineers and book authors Vanessa Hunt and Danny Handke
    • Tony Baxter, senior vice president of Creative Development for Walt Disney Imagineering, who wrote the book's introduction;




    • And some of the Imagineers and Disney artists who created many of the memorable attraction posters for Disney theme parks worldwide.


    The book goes on sale nationwide Tuesday, Sept. 4. Our event is Saturday, Sept 8, 4:00-6:00pm.
