  • [Fun] Poster Art of the Disney Parks Book Signing (Saturday, August 18)

    Anyone going to this?

    I sure am. Been waiting a while for this book to come out.

    I have it pre-ordered on Amazon, but I'm going to cancel. It'll be more expensive at the park vs. Amazon, but at least I'll get it signed.

    Looking forward to meeting all the people listed, especially Rolly Crump!

    Saturday, August 18, 2012
    9 am - 11am
    The Disney Gallery, Main Street, U.S.A., DisneylandPoster Art of the Disney Parks.
    Anyone who has ever walked through the gates of a Disney Park knows that there is a magical experience waiting to be had on the other side. All of the telltale signs are there: the sound of joyful music pipes across the promenade; the smells of popcorn and cookies waft through the air; and the colorful attraction posters depict all the wonderful rides and shows created for Guests by the Imagineers. Poster Art of the Disney Parks is a tribute to those posters, which begin telling the story of each attraction even before Guests have entered the queue area.
    Disney attraction posters have been an important means of communication since Disneyland began displaying them in 1956. Not only are they eye-catching pieces of artwork that adorn the Parks with flair and style, they are also displayed to build excitement and disseminate information about the newest additions to the Disney landscape. When the first attraction posters made their debut at Disneyland, one such piece of art proclaimed that Guests could have a "true-life adventure" on the Jungle Cruise. And in 2012 at Disney California Adventure, a poster announced the grand opening of Cars Land - the newest thrill-filled destination at the Disneyland Resort. Both of those posters are reproduced within this book, along with posters from every decade in between.
    As evidenced by the evolution of the attraction posters, art styles and design techniques have certainly changed over the years. These characteristics also differ from continent to continent. Posters from Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland exhibit the nuances in presentation that give each Park's pantheon of posters its signature look. But while artistic interpretations and color palettes may vary from Park to Park and from year to year, the spirit of Disney storytelling is a constant that ties them all together.
    The Poster Art of the Disney Parks book will be offered for $40, plus tax beginning at shop opening on the day of the event.
    As part of this release the following Walt Disney Imagineers, Authors and Artists will be on hand for a special appearance and signing from 9am - 11am.

    I went! Got my book signed by everyone on the list. It was awesome, and well worth the time spent waiting in line (which wasn't really that bad). The book is amazing, too.
