4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful illustrations; so-so text
An utterly gorgeous book that succeeds on the strength of its dozens and dozens of pieces of beautifully-reproduced artwork, mostly from Mickey's golden age (1928-1940). But Lambert's text, stiffly translated from the French, has little that's new in terms of historical fact or artistic insight, and it's peppered with small errors that should have been caught. Is this...

3.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Art, But Poorly Constructed
Undoubtedly the most indepth study of the art of Mickey Mouse. Each page is spectacular and beautifully presented with animation art including cels, drawings, and concept sketches. Almost any page would look wonderful framed. But a major flaw! The binding has separated in every display copy we have seen; every display copy in every store we found it in was badly...

3.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Art, But Poorly Constructed, 3 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: "Mickey Mouse" (Hardcover)
Undoubtedly the most indepth study of the art of Mickey Mouse. Each page is spectacular and beautifully presented with animation art including cels, drawings, and concept sketches. Almost any page would look wonderful framed. But a major flaw! The binding has separated in every display copy we have seen; every display copy in every store we found it in was badly damaged. We found the same thing to happen with the Art of Hercules. Hyperion seems to be lacking in the quality binding department. We understand that the French version of the Mickey Mouse book (published by Demons & Merveilles) is better constructed. Still, author Pierre Lambert is a hero for tackling such a huge project in an impressive way.

But Lambert's text, stiffly translated from the French, has little that's new in terms of historical fact or artistic insight, and it's peppered with small errors that should have been caught. Is this book worth a hundred and fifty bucks (or even Amazon's $105)? I'm not sure; I cashed in $85 worth of Amazon gift certificates to get it. But Mickey aficionados will probably get a big kick out of it based on the art alone, despite the high price and disappointing text.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any Disney collector, 25 Dec. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: "Mickey Mouse" (Hardcover)
In the pantheon of excellent Disney art books, this magnificent volume stands head and shoulders above the others. Don't be surprised if the artwork takes your breath away. The reproductions all but leap off the pages. And so much of the work never has appeared in print before. Text is appropriately minimal -- a modest history of the company, highlighted by a poignant foreword by Roy E. Disney. Choose not to put this on your bookshelf, or coffee table, and this will be the book you'll always regret you never acquired.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mickey Mouse, 25 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Mickey Mouse" (Hardcover)
An extraordinary artbook full of cels, graphite sketch drawings, production backgrounds paintings, (most of these never seen before on paper print) all around the long animated career of one of the greatest character in the animation history. This book, made like Lambert's others print works in a unique high collector's quality on which he accustomed us, is an absolutely must for all disney fans and all those who love animation in general!
