This deluxe 13" x 13" coffee table book on Disney's animated feature, The Jungle Book, is in the same series as Pinocchio, Mickey Mouse and Blanche Neige, but this book was never published in English. Featuring visual development art, story boards, character sketches, layouts, animation drawings, cels and backgrounds. The frontispiece is a cel & background set-up. The color plates have a UV varnish to enhance the image and simulate an animation cel. Minimal text in French.
From the publisher:
This book relates the fabulous history of the creation of the last animated feature overseen by Walt Disney. From the first sketches of Ken Anderson and Bill Peet to the magnificent backgrounds of Albert Dempster, close to 250 documents are reproduced: preliminary studies, storyboards, layouts, animation drawings, cells and backgrounds. A true testament to the work of Walt Disney and the importance of the cartoon as an art form.
