5.0 out of 5 stars Culhane's Fantasia is Fantastic! Sept. 25 2011
By Kurtis Findlay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
With the re-release of Fantasia to theatres in 1982, John Culhane published the definitive book on Disney's experimental animated feature. The book outlines, in great detail, the process of making such an ambitious film, complete with 280 illustrations, including 130 full colour plates.

The book is divided into nine main sections, seven of which are devoted to the seven sections of the film. Culhane draws on the actual story sessions by Walt and the crew which were all recorded by the studio stenographer and have been saved in the Disney archives. The artwork ranges from production stills to concept art, to story sketches, to model sheets, and many pictures of Walt and his staff in action. There is a lot of text, but it is interesting and helps understand the many illustrations.

This is a highly recommended book for Disney fans. Culhane wrote the book on Fantasia 2000 : Visions of Hope, another highly recommended art book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for the Disney Fantasia fan! Aug. 7 2011
By F. Klinowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is, without a doubt, an awesome addition to anyone's Disney collection! It is a beautifully illustrated look into the making of one of the most innovative and superbly crafted animated films of all times.
Not only is there the artwork but you get the 'quotes' and 'thoughts' of the various artists involved which really gives you a wonderful 'back stage' perspective of all that went into creating this masterpiece.
