Posted by PicasaWell, I haven't been doing very well so far at getting back to blogging more regularly!  Hopefully now that my scanner issues are worked out I will do better.  Here is the glorious Mary Blair Treasury of Golden Books.  As I turn each page I think to myself "Oh my goodness.  Gorgeous."  It is definitely a treasure.  Mary Blair is best known for her work with Disney, especially the It's a Small World ride which was based on her designs.  Check out my friend Danzel's awesome Mary Blair Pinterest Board for more of Blair's amazing work as well as the YouTube video below.

  1. Isn't it a great book? I do wish I had vintage copies of the original books, but this is the next best thing! I like the larger format, too. (And thanks for the Pinterest shout-out!) :o)
