Staff Reviews


Since the early days, Disney artists have created annual Christmas cards for in-house use. Taking these cards as its starting point, this collection features vintage holiday art from every decade, much never seen outside the studio, complete with removable reproductions of 12 cards. A perfect gift, beautifully produced, featuring not only the most famous Disney characters but many forgotten friends from the short subjects and package films of the 30's and 40's.

Description


"One of the nicest things about the holiday season is exchanging greetings with our many friends, for these messages from all over the world represent the true spirit of Christmas in many different ways." -Walt Disney
Imagine how special that greeting might be if sent by none other than Walt Disney!
Early in the history of the Walt Disney Studios, annual Christmas themed greeting cards were created, their designs and illustrations by such legendary Disney Studio artists as Tom Wood, Hank Porter, Bob Moore, Mary Blair, John Hench, and Paul Wenzel. Over eight decades, the artists also fashioned annual seasonal art for merchandise and advertisements, and in support of motion pictures, television programs, and the Disney Parks and Resorts.
From All of Us to All of You: The Disney Christmas Card features beloved characters and moments from these rarely seen and seldom-published examples of vintage Disney imagery. Gift-wrapped and sparkling in the spirit of the season, this one-of-a-kind collection of familiar, festive, fun, and feeling holiday art shines a light on a remarkable body of work and the people who created it, all while celebrating that most wonderful time of the year.

PRAISE FOR FROM ALL OF US TO ALL OF YOU: THE DISNEY CHRISTMAS CARD
"This is a book I have wanted to own for about the last 20 years! It's actually a book that I had once entertained hopes of putting together myself; and it's only the fact that it has finally reached us via the skilled editorship of my friend and fellow Disneyphile, Jeff Kurtti, that I am able to suppress my envy! . . . This project could so easily have been simply produced as a book of pictures (and, indeed, some years ago, a book of Disney postcards was published based on many of these very images), but what Kurtti has done that makes this volume both collectable and informative is to place each card within the context of the Studio's annual development. . . . The author has been ably aided by the book's talented designer, Paul Wolski, whose wide-screen' format (encased in a holly-green gate-fold binding) allows the cards to be shown to their very best advantage-especially since a number of the originals opened out horizontally and/or vertically. Fronts, backs and interiors are all simultaneously visible and, printed with shadows, appear to be lying on the pages of the open book-as if ready be picked and arranged on your Christmas mantelpiece!"—Brian Sibley, writer, broadcaster, and Disney scholar

PRAISE FOR FROM ALL OF US TO ALL OF YOU: THE DISNEY CHRISTMAS CARD
"The Disney Christmas Card is a perfect gift for any Disney fan (even if it's you, yourself). Author Kurtti, who knows his Disney history as well as anyone on earth, chronicles the history of Walt's studio cards over the decades. There are entertaining anecdotes and sidebars to match the engaging and ingenious artwork the Disney staff created year after year. You could scarcely do better than go behind the scenes to see how Walt and Company expressed their holiday greetings."—Leonard Maltin, film critic and historian
