Format: Hardcover
Bought this at Barnes and nobles in New York and I'm actually pretty disappointed, Knowing how much great work Marc Davis has done over the years with Disney and WED imagineering, this book don't show 5 percent of the great drawings he has accomplished.
The first 25% of the book is drawings of anatomical figures and drawing techniques (though its drawn by Davis) this is highly uninteresting when the Books title gives you the impression that you are going to be led into the Imagineering.
The words in the book is a good read on the other hand, but if you want it for the picture work, i would not recommend it.
I Have worked with Davis' sketches in the Disney archives and know that there are much more interesting work to show that this in this book.
I think its a shame, because He is my ALL-time favourite, and so extremely talented, and this book is not honouring him, it reminds me of a 90's art book with lack of pictures and colors.
Buy it for the read, its a must have for a library you read from, but not a coffee table book.
I'm sorry Davis, You should have made it yourself.

Format: Hardcover
Having seen the special Marc Davis Exhibit at the Disney Family Museum in the San Francisco Presidio, this book became even more precious.
My family admired Marc Davis' art for many, many years. He was a very generous man. He granted an interview to my father who had hoped to work for Disney as an illustrator.
Unfortunately, that did not happen, but I still recall the day, after World War II. in the early 50's when our refugee family was welcomed into his home one afternoon.
The book is a fitting tribute to him; very well done.

Obviously the artwork printed in the book only scratches the surface of Davis' immense talent and contribution. Much of the artwork was contributed from Davis' own art collection by his wife Alice. It shows Marc Davis' masterful versatility, be it as an animator, illustrator, painter, imagineer, concept artist, draftsman, anatomy expert. The book also features insightful essays by people who knew him and were inspired in their own fields by him. As a long-time admirer of Davis' artwork I truly love this book.

I have to agree with the E.Sixh,s review. Davis was great, this book is not. I pre-ordered it, If I had actually seen it I would have passed, not much Pirates, less Haunted Mansion, no Country Bears...really?
