From Toy Story to The Good Dinosaur, some of the most iconic and hilarious moments in Pixar's films were first conceived by the artists featured in this book.

This week we are recommending the book Maps of the Disney Parks: Charting 60 Years from California to Shanghai. It all started with a map. . . . Maps of the Disney Parks are more than just atlases used by guests to find their way to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. They are snapshots of a place and time, relics treasured by collectors, and gorgeous pieces of artwork. In fact, it was a map-imagined by Walt Disney and drawn by Herbert Ryman-that was used to sell the idea of Disneyland to investors. Unfold this book bursting with beautiful maps from when the very first Disney Park opened in 1955 right up to today. Discover details on how and why the domestic and international parks have changed over time, and enjoy six decades worth of skillful creativity.
I just finished this book and really enjoyed it. The author divides the book into decades from 1930s to the 2000s and takes you through the major points in the Walt Disney company. He uses lots of newspaper and magazine interviews for reference. I highly recommend it. There is a great site that goes along with the book, https://www.thedisneystory.com/ where he has scans and links to original articles used in his book. There is even a section of stories that did not make it into the book.
