Pocket Full of Colors: The Magical World of Mary Blair, Disney Artist Extraordinaire

We rated this book:


Mary Blair surrounded herself with a world of color, taking inspiration from every walk of life. As a little girl, she collected memories of colors from the desert to the ocean, and as she got older, she allowed her experiences to blossom into a whole world of experiences and colors. But when she took a job at Disney Studios, not everyone appreciated her eye for vibrant and fantastical color combinations. Yet Mary stayed true to who she was, and eventually they all came to appreciate her modern, abstract eye for color and featured her work in a Disney Park ride.

Vivid, bright, colorful, and inspiring, Pocket Full Of Color: The Magical World of Mary Blair highlights the beautiful, imaginative world of a strong woman who stood up not only for herself but for her concepts as well. Authors Amy Guglielmo and Jacqueline Tourville perfectly highlight Mary’s life in a charming, explorative, and exuberant way, while illustrator Brigette Barrager explodes the pages in fanciful color. As a Disney legend, Mary Blair has a story that needs to be told, making this a perfect book for any Disney fan or reader who enjoys stories of a strong woman who paved the way for those who succeeded her.
