    Pinocchio Studio Model Sheet and Layout Prints Group of 11 (Walt Disney, 1940). Disney's second animated feature has an "Old World" feel to it, in part due to designs created for the film by Gustaf Tenggren (1896 – 1970). In this group of studio-used model sheets printed on 14" x 11" photo print paper, three feature artwork or designs by Mr. Tenggren. One noted as "Preliminary Layout Sheet F-3" shows multiple images of Geppetto's cottage, including his workshop, one is of children running towards the Geppetto house, and one is a pan image of the village by night. Two sheets feature Jiminy Cricket ("Cricket Heads" and "Revised Cricket Model"), while Pinocchio also gets two sheets (one with no title and noted as layout artist Joe Hale's personal copy, while the other is "Pinocchio's Expression Before Coming to Life"). There are single sheets for "Revised Geppetto Poses," "Temporary Cleo Model," "Donkey Suggestions – Pleasure Island," and "Model of Spider Crab." Wow! Model sheets are an important part of the animation process, and rarely leave the studio grounds. Condition averages Very Good with minor handling and wear.
