    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: An Art in Its Making Signed Book (Walt Disney/Hyperion, 1994). This attractive out-of-print art book, written by Martin Krause and Linda Witowski, presents the full story of the making of Walt Disney's first animated feature, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937). It was published in conjunction with the 1994 exhibition of Snow White original production art from the collection of Stephen Ison, held at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. This collection is now part of the holdings of the Walt Disney Animation Research Library. The 194-page clothbound in dust jacket book is illustrated throughout in full color with reproductions of Master backgrounds, animation cels and drawings, concept and story art, and more. The text covers the genesis and making of the movie, its influence, and a thorough look at the forms of art that went into its production.
    This copy is signed by twelve artists who worked with Walt Disney in production of the film, including four of Walt Disney's "Nine Old Men:" Ollie Johnston (1912 - 2008), animator; Frank Thomas (1912 - 2004), animator; Ward Kimball (1914 - 2002), animator; and Marc Davis (1913 - 2000), animator of Snow White. Also signing were Clair Weeks (1911 - 1996), animator; Bill Justice, animator; Ken O'Connor (1908 - 1998), art director; Joe Grant (1908 - 2005), character designer; Maurice Noble (1911 - 2001), backgrounds; Carl Fallberg (1915 - 1996), story adaptation; Adriana Caselotti (1916 - 1997), voice of Snow White; and Marge Champion (born 1919), live-action model for Snow White. A Howard Lowery Certificate of Authenticity verifying the legitimacy of the signatures is included.
    This is a first rate book and collection of signatures related to the making of one of the world's landmark films. Condition is Fine.
