Disney Little Golden Books


I've realsied what the vintage disney posters remind me of. These Disney Little Golden Books. They were first published in 1942, costing 25c, at a time when childrens books cost $3, a big exence for most families. The first Disney book was published in 1944.



 This Cinderella book was first published in (1950), and is still being published today. I actually bought a copy of this book and the artwork is still the same.



 This Dumbo was published in 1955.



Not all of the Disney books told the stories from the films.



I found an excellent blog; http://goldengems.blogspot.com, where alot of these images are from.



Another thing I really like about these books is that even the modern Pixar film's books are done in a similar, old-fashioned illustration style.
