The Little Mermaid

current mood: nostalgic

My personal journal has been home to many posts of pictures from the various Little Mermaid books I have collected over the years.  Well, it's time to move those posts over here.  Feel free to friend my graphics journal for any updates of Little Mermaid or Disney picture related entires.

Anyway, I was cleaning my room the other day and stumbled across some of my old Disney books from when I was little.  Many are dated from the late 80's-early 90's, and were either birthday or Christmas gifts to either myself or my younger sister.  I went ahead and got copies of the images from two of the books, The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.  Since there are so many images, I have split the entried into two (one for each movie).  And following post will be of another Princess book I have, one of the My Side of the Story.

teasers:


The images are up for grabs, but please, if they are reused, credit them back to me.  Other than that, have fun and enjoy!

*gasp*

The art on this is so pretty. Much more realistic than some of the Little Mermaid "Books" they have now.

The art is different. Flipping through the books (in person) the drawings have a sketch-like quality to them, it's kinda neat.

We Will Meet Again

I noticed that too, just from looking at your scans. Now they computerize everything and it doesn't feel as... authentic. You know.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I think that's why I like these older books so much.

Nice scans!

I have always loved that picture of Ursula mid-Vanessa transformation, and I think it was that picture alone that had me wanting to share the images in general, lol. Some pictures seem to get repeated in the many copies of the books, but that one I haven't seen anywhere else.

I think I also have the Aristocats... But I've never seen that movie so I didn't read that one very much.


The Little Mermaid one is in the best shape. :)

The book itself isn't small, rather, a good medium-sized. They date back to the early 90's.

I love how the character design from this book is a little different from what has been used in more recent ones. The artwork is a lot softer, so it adds a different kind of edge to the characters. Vanessa turned out pretty cool, didn't she?
