Mario Gentilini, former "Editor in chief" of Topolino, asked his artists to
follow Taliaferro's model sheets, and gave some copies of 'em to Bottaro,
Carpi, Chierchini, Perego... But Bottaro didn't like that "old" style. He
couldn't even think about a Scrooge drawn by Taliaferro (indeed, Taliaferro
never had drawn Scrooge in the 5Os, yet).
This is the reason of the strange "mix" of models. Bottaro's "second" style
comes from Barks directly. But Barks' Daisy was peculiar too much. Gentilini
couldn't stand her.
