    The Walt Disney Studios New Employee Handbook (Walt Disney, 1938). Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to work in the Walt Disney Studios as an artist during the Golden Age of Animation? This booklet can give you a glimpse into that world! This is the handbook that new hires were given as part of their orientation to the job. Chapters cover "The Studio", "Story", "Layout", "Backgrounds", "Animation", "Directors", "Training", "Salaries", "Tryout", "Procedures", and "Problems". Penciled Disney roughs of well-known favorites are printed throughout this vital guidebook for the "noobs" in the company. The fascinating 31 page 6" x 9" manual has slight tanning and handling, but is otherwise in Fine condition. This is one incredible peek behind the curtain of life in the Disney Studios! From the Retta Scott Archives.
