    I picked it up Sunday evening out at Disneyana. I can't really review the writing yet, (I'm only one chapter in yet) but it does have lots of rarely seen photos I've been salivating over.
    In the foreward it's made clear that it is modelled after the fabuous 'Nine Old Men' by John Canemaker, and though much thinner, it is a very nice companion. At 35 dollars, some may find it a bit pricey. Perhaps a paperback is in the works.

    Yahoo!! The anticipation over this book nearly did me in! I also pre-ordered it from Amazon several years back, and I've received about a dozen "Sorry for the delay--do you still want this?" e-mails from Amazon since. Thanks for the preview, Werner!

    It hasn't even been a year since Bruce Gordon died? It was such an immense loss that it feels like it's been a few years already. He will be missed.
