WALT DISNEY'S "SKY CROWN" - A Logo For All Seasons
More eye-grabbing logo concepts for Walt Disney's proposed ski resort in California's Mineral King Valley. Early 1960s.
These miniature works of art (the artist is unknown by me) were done with colored pencils, crayons, and gouache on pieces of white paper mounted onto matte board. The 40 year-old contact cement appears to have absorbed into the paper on some of them, leaving a yellowish patina.
Despite their obvious historical significance, the originals were sold off to the public through Disney's online auctions in 2006. I wasn't able to buy any of them unfortunately, but I'm very grateful for these incredible jpegs to share and enjoy.
