    Mickey Mouse Annual Opening Title Pages Original Art Group of 3 (Walt Disney/Dean & Son, 1950-56). Here is the rare original art for three great opening title pages from British issues of Mickey Mouse Annual books. A word about dating these - the copyright dates found inside each annual is almost always for a book published the following year, so a book dated 1949 inside is really the 1950 book. That said, here are the pages: Mickey Mouse Annual title page from 1950, with Goofy and Pluto; a gouache painting on Bristol board that has been trimmed and mounted to a second lightweight board with type and hand-lettered title (the board is actually recycled from 1949, with new art pasted on). Art image size is approximately 6.5" x 8.25" on a master board measuring 10.5" x 13.75". Next is the title page art for 1954, a fantastic gouache and ink painting of Goofy underwater; image size is 9" x 10" on illustration board measuring 10.25" x 12.5". The last piece is the title page from 1956, and it's a very cool circus scene with Mickey and Minnie, painted in gouache and ink with an image size of 8.5" x 11", on illustration board measuring 11.5" x 14.25". The 1950 art is in Good condition with handling wear, slight waviness, and edge wear. The 1954 and '56 boards are in Very Good condition with minor handling wear.
