The book is signed with the style of signature Disney designers used as
the basis for the Disney Company and Walt Disney World logo.  They smoothed
out some of Walt's kinks to make it more legible.

 

 

Walt Disney Autographed "LIVING DESERT" Book 1954

In 1953 Walt Disney released his first True-Life Adventure nature documentary film, "The Living Desert."  At the Academy Awards presentation in 1954 the film won the Oscar for best documentary.  This book was published that same year.  Disneyland's mine train, opened a year after this book was published, incorporated a section called "The Living Desert," inspired by the movie and book.  Walt Disney has boldly autographed the title page in blue fountain pen ink:

TO MARY + BILL PIGUE BEST WISHES WALT DISNEY

Walt has signed in his famous "Disney font" block signature-- the one associated with the Disney Company logo.  Eight words in Walt Disney's hand.


In superior condition.  No dust jacket.
