    Mickey Mouse Annual and Donald Duck's Annual Title Pages Original Art Group of 2 (Walt Disney, 1951/1956). The artwork created for 1950s UK Disney Annual books is always extremely colorful and faithful to the Disney style - even if the image is "swiped" from an American publication! Here is the original Title Page artwork created for two of those books. The first is a fun illustration of Donald Duck filming Goofy and Mickey, as they act out a pirate scene. This was used in the 1951 Mickey Mouse Annual, and has an approximate image area of 9" x 9.75", including the hand-lettered title; board size is 10.75" x 12.75". If the next item looks familiar, there's a reason. The Title Page art for the 1956 Donald Duck's Annual "borrowed" its image from a 1954 Walt Disney's Comics and Stories cover as originally drawn by Carl Barks (with a few minor changes; a color print of the comic cover is included). This painting adheres to the Barks style so well you might this this was from his hand! This painting has an image size of 8" x 8", and the overall image including the hand-lettered type (which is painted on a separate artboard and pasted in place) and colorful border is 10.5" x 13.75", on a board measuring 12.25" x 15.5". Both pieces are painted in gouache on illustration board; whiteout is used on the Donald cover. Condition is Good, with handling and edge wear.
