    Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnson - The Illusion of Life Disney Animation, Signed Limited Edition 2057/3500 (Hyperion, 1981). This slipcased hardcover book was signed by the authors, Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnson, on a numbered bookplate. The book is in very good plus condition; in burgundy cloth decorated with gilt Pinocchio illustrations on the front cover, and lettered in gilt to the spine. There is some minor dust collection on the cloth covers; the book is housed in a pictorial "window" slipcase. A sumptuously illustrated, vastly informative, and hugely entertaining inside story of Disney's golden age told by a pair of the "Nine Old Men." The slipcase showcases the magnificent art from "Pinocchio."
