The Art and Flair of Mary Blair by John Canemaker caught our eye when we mistakenly thought the cover was delightfully retro. Joke’s on us, as Mary Blair is not at all modern contemporary but vintage Disney. Nonetheless, this book is well worth a mention as the colourful works of Mary Blair are quite inspiring. In addition to her time at the Disney animation studios, Blair designed theme park attractions (It’s A Small World among others) and made her mark in the areas of film, print and advertising. Yummy pictures.
