Tribute to Pioneers of Animation Program Book for Event w/ Signatures of 25 Legendary Artists 1994
paperbound book, 64 pages, 8.5" x 5.5"; 8.5" x 10.5" color picture
This is the program book for the event organized by Michael Fazio of Vintage Animation to honor the artists who developed and established studio animation beginning in the 1930s. The Awards banquet was held on September 1, 1994, and the artists signed labels which were then fixed to pages of the program book.
A total of twenty-five (25) signatures are in this copy of the book:
Morey Zukor. Included is a color picture of the artists assembled for the event.
Izzy Ellis, Jack Hannah and Walter Lantz were honored posthumously, and Joe Grant did not provide signatures for the book.
Two (2) of the artists signed with a heavier ink marker that has mildly discolored the preceding and opposite pages; there is slight handling; the color photo has a vertical crease at center: VERY FINE condition.
