A delightful introduction for children to Mary Blair, Walt Disney's favorite artist, who contributed color styling and inspirational artwork for many of the classic Disney animated films of the 40's and 50's and then returned to the studio in the 60's as an Imagineer. Walt said Mary used colors he didn't know existed. This book's charming illustrations capture not only Mary's color sense but her evolving fashion sense as well.
In honour of its 75th Anniversary, and in time for holiday shopping, here is a new large-format edition of the best written, most useful guide to classical mythology, crammed with beautiful, new illustrations and decorations.

From the foremost living authority on the Amish and other Anabaptists in North America, this is an up-to-date, non-academic introduction for the curious layperson. Accurate information on the Amish is very difficult to find on the Internet, and impossible to find on television or in Christian romances, so this book is a myth-busting necessity.
