"On February 16, 1962, senior animator Marc Davis officially transitioned from Walt Disney Feature Animation to a new division of the company: WED Enterprises, the group assembled to design Walt's new theme park. The move would be a significant one. After thirty-plus years animating classic Disney features, Marc would become one of the most renowned of Walt Disney's new breed of employee--Imagineers. During Marc's time with WED (later Walt Disney Imagineering), he would become a driving force behind the designs of many of the most iconic attractions at the Disney theme parks. Pirates of the Caribbean, The Haunted Mansion, it's a small world, Jungle Cruise, Country Bear Jamboree, and many others feature environments and storylines that were heavily influenced by his conceptual artwork. Highlighting work from the 1960's through the 1980s, this two-volume set includes more then a thousand pieces from the Imagineering archives, the vast majority of which have never been published. In addition, for the first time Marc's design theories--as well as many of his stories of working with walt-- are covered (and even in his own words, as recorded during hours upon hours of interviews by author Chris Merritt)."--Slipcase.

The hefty volumes showcase Marc's mostly unseen Disney theme park concept art and offer a unique behind-the-scenes view as told through Marc's own words.
