Meet the Authors of Walt Kelly: The Life and Art of the Creator of Pogo
Walt Kelly is considered to be one of the most influential cartoonist and animators of the 20th century.

This monograph focuses on his early years with Disney through the remembrances of Ward Kimball, with a detailed look at Kelly’s working methods, and a comprehensive analysis of Pogo and the politics of the 1950s-1970s. The tribute to the cartoon of Pogo is full of original never before seen Disney art, Kelly’s comic book and book covers, newspaper strips and animation art.
