"Paper Dreams is comics and animation historian Canemaker's celebration of Disney's greatest contribution to filmmaking, the storyboard. Developed as a way of visually communicating a script, the storyboard has become a commonplace of filmmaking-and not just for animated films. Canemaker examines the creative processes of the Disney studio and profiles such individual talents as Bill Peet, Ted Sears, and-surprise!-Walt Disney, whom he presents as an artist rather than as an impresario. A veteran observer of animation and a gainfully employed academic, Canemaker delivers measured accolades that are far more impressive than the usual Disney corporate rah-rah."--American Library Association Booklist
"This book is Disney's love letter, or maybe a thank you note, to the legacy of Mary Blair. It features so much of her beautiful work, all in vivid color, with notes about what inspired which piece, how they are developed, and when they were drawn. It is gorgeous to look at, and everyone should have a copy in their library."--Romper
