    Walt Disney Studios - Walt Disney's Donald Duck "Full Speed Ahead" Cover Original Art (Whitman, 1953). Job hunting has never been so lively, as Donald Duck answers an ad seeking a skilled driver. This exuberant pen and ink illustration created by a Disney artist, was used as a guide for the final hand-painted cover art for the Whitman "Tell-A-Tale" book, Walt Disney's Donald Duck Full Speed Ahead. The art was drawn at the same size as the printed work and measures 7" x 7.5" with a 5.75" x 5.75" image area. Drawn on vellum paper, there is some rubber cement staining on the back of the work, a small cut under the logo, and the right corner has been trimmed to the edge of the image area, otherwise it's in Very Good condition. A magnificent, miniature magnum opus, that any Donald Duck lover will be pleased to own! Includes two copies of the Whitman book, Walt Disney's Donald Duck Full Speed Ahead.
