The Disney Book - Jim Fanning

Disney historian Jim Fanning has done an outstanding job in creating this coffee table book for DK Publishing. Touching on all aspects of Disney's work, from films and television through theme parks, the book is a visual delight.

Photos from the Disney archives make the book entertaining just to look at, let alone actually reading the text. This is the one unfortunate thing about coffee table books; their size makes them unwieldy. Thus, despite the book's relative brevity (<200 pages), it took a while to read because of its awkward size.

Still, highly recommended for Disneyphiles.
