Brigette Barrager signs her new book, Pocket Full of Colors: The Magical World of Mary Blair, Disney Artist Extraordinaire. Co-authored by Amy Guglielmo and Jacqueline Tourville, the picture book illustrates the work of the painter, designer and animator, one of the first women hired at Walt Disney Studios in 1940, especially her use of bold colors. Blair created the art for Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan, among other animated features. Thwarted by her male colleagues, Blair left the company twice and became a successful commercial artist, Broadway set designer picture book illustrator. Following her return to Disney in 1953, Blair designed the ride It’s A Small World, first for the 1964 New York World's Fair and later Disneyland, in addition to murals in Disney parks, hotels and other attractions.
