Like those volumes, this volume is licensed only for France and will never appear in print in English. So the text is in French; however, anyone ordering this book from Stuart Ng Books will receive our exclusive English language translation booklet, illustrated with five unpublished deer movement studies by Rico Lebrun!

Our shipment is currently on a boat crossing the Atlantic and we expect it to arrive the first week of January 2018.

Take a look at our Bambi page to see 17 page spreads and a video of Pierre flipping thru the entire book!

Walt Disney's Bambi

I saw Don Hahn at the Disney Feature Animation this week and he was kind enough to sign his brand new book for us. Don is a producer (Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, Maleficent), director (Waking Sleeping Beauty), and writer of seven books.

Yesterday's Tomorrow: Disney's Magical Mid-Century - Don's latest book is is a collection of beautiful mid-century design work for Disney's animation and live-action films, theme park, television, space documentaries, the World's Fair, and more! Including: Mary Blair; Tom Oreb; Eyvinde Earle; John Hench; Walt Peregoy's color concepts for 101 Dalmations; Polish designed posters for Disney films; concept art for Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom; 20,000 Leagues under the Sea; Disneyland; architect Welton Becket; and more.

Yesterday's Tomorrow

Tale as Old as Time: The Art and Making of Beauty and the Beast - Signed by the author Charles Solomon and by Don Hahn, producer of both the animated and live action versions of Beauty and the Beast. This book covers the making of the 1991 animated feature Beauty and the Beast in depth, devoting three-quarters of its pages to the animated film. This 2017 revised edition has 48 additional pages devoted to the live action version currently on Netflix.

Art of Wakfu Season 3 - This hardcover French animation art book is in the familiar Disney/Pixar format, 208 pages, over 250 color illustrations, and fully bilingual in English and French. Wakfu Season 3 will be available on Netflix April 2018.

We also have some of the earlier out-of-print Making of Wakfu Artbooks also fully bilingual in English and French.

Art of Wakfu Season 3

Générations Science-Fiction: De Flash Gordon à Matrix - a beautifully photographed collection of Sci-Fi movie production and advertising original art and screen used props, from the seventies to the present. It has never been published in English, but the text is minimal and each picture is worth a thousand words.


Star Wars, Objets du Mythe - an incredible collection of Star Wars production and advertising original art and screen used props, beautifully photographed. It has never been published in English--and probably never will--but the text is minimal and the illustrations are the draw here.

Star Wars, Objets du Mythe
