    Walt Disney's Story of Bambi Storybook Illustrations Original Art Framed Display (Walt Disney/Simon & Schuster, 1948). In the eyes of many Disney fans, there has never been an animated film quite as beautiful as Bambi (1942). In addition to that magnificent feature film, there have been many, many storybooks based on Disney's version of the Felix Salten novel. Here's an incredibly gorgeous framed display featuring five original illustrations within a custom mat. These illustrations were used and re-used for years as a book and record (or cassette) called Walt Disney's Story of Bambi; we've seen versions printed up to 1977, and as far as we can tell, there may be later printings. With art this attractive, we can certainly see why! The delicate, detailed artwork is in watercolor on board, with images ranging in size from 3" x 2.25" up to 11.5" x 3.25" (this larger piece has a second illustration of grass and bushes underneath). The art is framed with glass for an overall size of 26.75" x 19.75". The frame is sold as-is. Art condition is Fine. A treasure!
