PRAISE FOR YESTERDAY'S TOMORROW"For about 20 years, between the end of World War II and the assassination of President Kennedy, America was obsessed with modern design. The abstract shapes and bold geometry of the space age created a new aesthetic that affected art, architecture, and every sort of creative endeavor. . . . Veteran animation producer Don Hahn explores the design and culture of the 1950s and '60s as seen through the eyes of Walt Disney. Modern angles crept into every corner of the Disney universe, screaming out from toy packaging, neon signs, and even the credit sequences in movies. The book's gorgeous endpapers are based on vintage Disneyland shopping bags."—Los Angeles Magazine

PRAISE FOR YESTERDAY'S TOMORROW"This feels like the book that many of us Disney aficionados (especially those whose childhoods coincided with the 'fifties and 'sixties) have long been waiting to read. Don Hahn presents a masterly tour of the Disney's futurism as it impacted not just on the creation and development of Disneyland but on film and TV, leisure and hospitality (The Disneyland Hotel, Celebrity Sports Center and the unrealized plans for a Ski resort in the Sierra), education (CalArts, the New York World's Fair and educational films and programmes) and Walt's final bid for a utopian future with the concept of EPCOT."—Brian Sibley, writer, broadcaster, and Disney scholar


"Film producer Hahn introduces the process of making an animated film, using the team at the Disney studios and their work to show how these complex projects grow from ideas to finished products. . . . Children interested in filmmaking will find this informative, and browsers will enjoy an entertaining backstage tour."
