Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope you all are having a great week! I feel like this week is a little funny because I woke up thinking today was Monday, and it's definitely not. Anyways, if you're like me and love anything and everything Disney then you're going to love today's post! It's all about the Disney books you HAVE to have in your life. All of the ones on my list today are considered coffee table books, but they have some great information in them, and they are beautiful to look at!
1. Poster Art of the Disney Parks
This book is seriously incredible! If you love the idea of reading a book of how some things in the Disney Parks go from concept to full scale to then posters around the park for advertisements, this is the book for you. Even if you don't like that idea, then I would still highly suggest this book! It's so colorful and full of life that anyone of any age will just enjoy looking at the photos.
2. The Art of Pixar
I'm obsessed with Pixar films. Ever since I saw Toy Story when I was small, Pixar was so cool to me. And now as an adult, Pixar is even cooler. I've been very lucky to meet friends who have worked for Pixar or done some promotional work with Pixar. But the message of the company remains the same: create amazing stories that people are going to want to share. That's why I love this book. It shows the stories that Pixar has created from start to finish. There are a ton of concept drawings, all the way to finished products in the book, and I can't stop looking at it!
3. Maps of the Disney Parks
I sat for hours reading over this book! I've only ever been to Walt Disney World in Orlando, so this book opened a whole new world for me. I was able to see Walt's vision come to life at Disneyland over the past 60 years. I was able to see what many claim is the best Disney park, in Tokyo Disney Sea, and how amazing Shanghai really is! There's nothing about this book that I don't absolutely love, except that I wish there was more in it. It's already long, but I want a FULL history of the maps. I'm just weird like that.
4. Capturing the Magic
If you're into Disney photography, and love seeing perspectives of the parks from someone else this book is for you. While it is a little outdated (even though it was published in 2015) many of the same icons and spots around the parks are unchanged. I love that this book gave me so many great ideas for my own Disney Instagram account, and there were a few tips and tricks along the way in the book.
Well friends, I hope you all have a great rest of your week! If you have any of these books, or love another Disney book let me know in the comments.
