This is an extremely rare Disney Standard Character Guidebook, weighing approx 5.5kg, hardback bound with a box sleeve which it slots into. The guidebook goes through the history of Disney including an introduction to their early merchandise, today's merchandise and has tabbed sections on each of the characters, how to draw them, standard poses of each character etc. The design guide goes through the characters as follows:

Mickey

Minnie

Donald Duck

Daisy Duck

Goofy

Pluto

This is a guide that is only handed to those that are commissioned to make merchandise for Disney - so it is extremely rare and not for general purchase. The box cover has some surface stains through age and a couple of dents, but the book itself is in near immaculate condition (there is a small, wrinkled/creased section on the bottom left hand corner on the spine on the cover, but this is barely visible). It would make a fabulous addition to any collector of children's or Disney products, but also anyone interested in design or illustration as it goes into depth as to how each character's distinct personality is achieved.

As ever, the photographs don't do this product justice, but if you want to contact me on my email and ask further questions or have further photographs, please do not hesitate
