    Mickey Mouse Annual Games Illustrations Original Art Group of 6 (Walt Disney/Dean & Son, c. 1940s-50s). In addition to illustrated stories and the occasional comic strip, most of the British Mickey Mouse Annual books carried board games, with the "board" often found in the middle of the book, printed as a two-page spread. Here's a rare group of original artwork from some of these games. Included: "The Egg Race," painted in orange and black on board measuring 20" x 12", with an image area of 18.75" x 10" (NOTE: by 1950, the annuals were printed in full color). All other game boards in this group are in full color, and include "The Fairground," image size 18.5" x 10", artboard size 21" x 14.75"; "Donald Duck Stumbles Game" full-color game board, image size 15.75" x 5.25", artboard size 16.25" x 10.75"; and "The Mountain Race" full-color game board, image size 18"x 11.5", artboard size 19.5" x 13.25". From the Annual for 1954 (inside copyright 1953), we have two pieces of art. First, the page 55 title illustration featuring Goofy in his long underwear, with a space for the instructions; it's painted in full color, with an image size of 9" x 7.75", on an artboard measuring 10.75" x 10.25". The page 56-57 game board is also included; it's painted in full color with an image size of 19.75" x 12", on an artboard measuring 21.5" x 14.75". Just for fun, we've included a color copy of page 55 from the book with the rules -- you'll have to supply your own dice and game pieces though! The art is painted in gouache and ink on illustration board, featuring the popular Disney "Fab Five" characters - Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Minnie Mouse, and Pluto. Art condition is Good to Very Good, with handling and edge wear with small stains and mild toning.
