Last week, i've let you know about the new and gorgeous "Jungle book" book by Pierre Lambert. This week, i have a good news for all Disney animation fans as Pierre Lambert previous book about Snow White is now available in soft cover edition and at a very reasonable price - 30 euros on Amazon.fr instead than 120 euros for the hard cover edition.
The size of the book is smaller but still big - 10" x 10" - and the artwork inside the book is the same than one could see in the original edition. Let's have a closer look at this great book, another perfect Christmas gift!
This first artwork is a cello on background painting for a scene at the beginning of the movie.
Next artwork is a Joe Grant preliminary study of the evil queen.
This cello on background painting of the evil queen is famous but so perfect that it's always a pleasure to see it again.
Another cello on background painting for the famous scene of Snow White with the animals of the forest.
This next artwork is a production background watercolor painting of the seven dwarfs cottage.
... just like this one below.
Here is a rare preliminary study for the seven dwarfs by Ferdinand Horvath.
Below, a cello on background painting for the music sequence.
Same for this next one with all the seven dwarfs.
The book also show great story-board drawings like this one of the witch during the "apple" scene.
A cello on production background for the same "apple" scene.
And a last one for the happy ending!
The book has 240 pages. This is the french edition, but only the first 30 pages have a text in french and all the others have only artwork. So, no need to say that even if you don't read french it won't be a problem to enjoy the book full of never-seen-before Snow White artwork. Just like the Jungle Book book by the same author, i highly recommand it to you, specially at this very affordable price.
