Hi all!

It looks like fellow DCMLer Didier Ghez is publishing a book next month 
filled with interviews of Rudy Ising, David Hand, Bill Tytla, Marc Davis, Jack 
Hannah, Milt Kahl, etc., etc. talking about a ton of stuff that went on at Disney 
Animation during the 1920's to 1960's. 

Even more important (as far as the DCML is concerned) is that a future book 
in his Talking Disney series will be about Disney comics containing interviews 
with Floyd Gottfredson, Paul Murry, Al Hubbard and others. I've never read any 
Murry-Hubbard interviews, so this'll be great to me. Didier asked about a 
Gottfredson interview by Saba a few months ago on the list. I had downloaded it 
previously and was able to send it to him, didn't know it was possibly for a 
book, so it's nice to indirectly contribute to it. :) 

At any rate, they seem like books to look forward to and I'll defintely be 
getting the Disney comics book whenever it comes out and probably a few of the 
others as well. Below is some more info on the upcoming Disney Animation book 
to be released in November:

Ghez, Didier (editor): Walt's People - Volume 1 published by Xlibris; 2004. 
The Talking Disney series is a collection of the best interviews ever 
conducted with Disney artists.

Contributors to the series include noted Disney experts Robin Allan, Paul F. 
Anderson, Michael Barrier, J.B. Kaufman, Jim Korkis, Mike Lyons and John 

Talking Disney - Volume 1 includes in-depth interviews with artists Rudy 
Ising, Dave Hand, Bill Tytla, Ken Anderson, Jack Hannah, John Hench, Marc Davis, 
Milt Kahl, Harper Goff and Joyce Carlson and discusses among many other 
subjects the Disney Studio before Mickey Mouse, the challenges in directing Snow 
White, the making of Destino with Dali, the process that led to the production of 
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the frustrations and joys of Marc Davis and Milt 
Kahl and the creation of It's a Small World. It contains hundreds of new 
stories about the Studio and its artists and should delight even the most serious 
historians and enthusiasts.
