Résumé de l'éditeur

The image we have of Mickey Mouse is the classic head and two round ears imagined by Walt Disney sixty-four years ago. What is it about this simple set of interconnected spheres that has made Mickey Mouse one of the most recognized faces in modern history ? In The Art of Mickey Mouse, artists, designers, illustrators, and cartoonists from around the world have captured the famous mouse who lives in our collective imagination. Mickey, who throughout his history has been a major figure in film and TV, is here newly incarnated by fine artists such as Andy Warhol and Keith Haring, illustrators such as Milton Glaser and Maurice Sendak, and cartoonists such as Charles Schulz and R. Crumb - and even by another American icon, Michael Jackson - into roles both serious and strange, familiar and alien.

Walt Disney, the visionary inventor of Mickey, once said, "There's a lot of the Mouse in me". The Art of Mickey Mouse, now a Disney Miniature, proves that there's a lot of the Mouse in all of us. In his introduction to the book, John Updike explores Mickey's evolution and impact, and meditates on what makes this mouse so memorable. Important for its exploration of the meaning of a pop culture icon in art history and whimsical and endearing beacause of its capricious subject, this full-color, museum-quality collection will delight art lovers and Mickey Mouse fans alike.

Craig Yoe invents toys for major companies, holding six patents in his name. Formerly, he was Art Director and Vice-President/General Manager for Jim Henson's Muppets. Yoe has been a consultant to the Smithsonian on the history of cartoonists and currently designs animation for MTV Networks.
