It's time for Mousetalgia's Summer book club! This week, Team Mousetalgia talks to author/historian Didier Ghez about the fourth entry in his "The Drew as They Pleased" books about oft-overlooked artwork from the Disney Studios - in this case, "The Hidden Art of Disney's Mid Century Era." Ghez describes the art from this period of unprecedented stylistic shifts and modern graphic sensibilities found in films like Alice in Wonderland and Sleeping Beauty. Also, we speak with author Jeff Ryan about his new book "A Mouse Divided: How Ub Iwerks Became Forgotten, and Walt Disney Became Uncle Walt." Ryan's new book talks about the relationship between Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks, and how the duo created the mouse that changed the world. Plus - we discuss some of the latest children's books to be released by the Disney Company - and more.
