Publisher Graphique De France is putting on the US market a series of lovely 2009 mini wall Disney calendars that will please both children and collectors of vintage Disneyana. Among the most notable releases in this mini size (Size Closed: 7″ w x 7″ h. Size Opened: 7″ w x 14″) we find “Sleeping Beauty“:

Trumpets sound and horses prance, jesters juggle and banners billow in the wind. With its richly colored backgrounds and details inspired by medieval paintings and architecture, Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty looks like a tapestry come to life. Based on the classic fairy tale by Charles Perrault and set to the music of Tchaikovsky‘s ballet, Disney’s Sleeping Beauty tells the story of Aurora, a princess cursed at birth by the evil fairy Maleficent. A triumph of art, music, and storytelling, the film was well worth the efforts involved in its creation. Sleeping Beauty lives on happily ever after, a masterpiece of animation and an enduring classic.
