On November 18, 1928, the world's most famous Mouse made his very first public debut. Today, we celebrate 90+ years of Mickey in one of the most expansive illustrated publications on the Disney universe. Starting with the first sketches of a character who was almost named Mortimer, we trace the career of Walt Disney's and Ub Iwerks's most famous creation, one met with an explosion of worldwide popularity preceded only by the earlier successes of Charlie Chaplin. With unlimited access to Disney's vast historical collections as well as public and private collections, the authors bring Mickey's success story to life: concept art, story sketches, background paintings, and animation drawings as well as historical photographs trace the origins and evolution of such timeless favorites as Steamboat Willie, The Band Concert, and Brave Little Tailor. They also follow Mickey as he builds on this legendary library of short cartoons by appearing in two historic feature-length films, Fantasia and Fun and Fancy Free. Extensive archival research sheds new light on little-known chapters of Mickey's career, the origins of the Mickey Mouse Club, and his use as a patriotic icon during World War II. Along the way, we encounter the work of all major Mickey artists in both film and comics, including such greats as Ub Iwerks, Win Smith, Ferdinand Horvath, Fred Moore, Floyd Gottfredson, Carl Barks, Manuel Gonzales, Paul Murry, Romano Scarpa, Giorgio Cavazzano, Byron Erickson, and Cesar Ferioli. Mickey Mouse has left an indelible mark on everyday culture as well as high art, becoming a favored subject for Pop artists such as Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Roy Lichtenstein. As Walt Disney once said: "I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing-that it was all started by a mouse." And an end to the success story is nowhere in sight. Today, 90+ years after his creation, Mickey remains as lovable and popular as ever. Let's pay tribute to the little fellow, his legend, and his legacy with a monument to the one and only Mickey Mouse. Copyright (c) 2020 Disney Enterprises, Inc. About the series TASCHEN is 40!

Le 18 novembre 1928, le monsieur Souris le plus celebre au monde faisait sa premiere apparition publique. Aujourd'hui, nous celebrons les 90 ans de Mickey avec l'une des publications illustrees les plus exhaustives consacrees a l'univers Disney. En commencant par les premiers croquis d'un personnage qui s'appelait alors Mortimer, nous retracons la carriere de la creature la plus fameuse creee par Walt et Ub, saluee par une popularite mondiale fulgurante et durable que Charlie Chaplin etait le seul a avoir connue jusqu'alors. Grace a un acces illimite aux archives Disney et a plusieurs collections publiques et privees, les auteurs redonnent vie a la legende: esquisses, story-boards, arriere-plans, dessins d'animation et photos d'epoque retracent les origines et l'evolution de grands classiques comme Steamboat Willie, La Fanfare et Le Brave Petit Tailleur. Ils suivent aussi Mickey dans la construction de son legendaire catalogue de courts-metrages d'animation, qui debute par deux longs-metrages historiques, Fantasia et Coquin de printemps. Les recherches approfondies menees pour cet ouvrage mettent un coup de projecteur inedit sur des chapitres peu connus de la carriere de Mickey, comme les origines du Mickey Mouse Club, ou le role d'icone patriotique qu'on lui fit endosser pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Au fil de l'histoire, on admire le travail de tous les grands artistes qui ont faconne le personnage de Mickey, a l'ecran et en bande dessinee, parmi lesquels Ub Iwerks, Win Smith, Ferdinand Horvath, Freddie Moore, Floyd Gottfredson, Carl Barks, Manuel Gonzales, Paul Murry, Romano Scarpa, Giorgo Cavazzano, Byron Erickson et Cesar Ferioli. Mickey a laisse une marque indelebile sur la culture populaire et quotidienne mais aussi dans les beaux-arts, pour etre devenu un sujet emblematique entre les mains d'artistes pop comme Andy Warhol, Keith Haring et Roy Lichtenstein. Comme aimait a le dire Walt Disney: "J'espere juste que nous ne perdrons jamais de vue que tout a commence par une souris." Et la success-story ne semble pas pres de s'arreter. Aujourd'hui, a 90 ans, Mickey est aussi aime et populaire que jamais. Rendons hommage a cette petite creature, a sa legende et a son heritage en erigeant un monument a la souris!
