Vintage Illustrations from the Walt Disney Studios, Mother Goose Book from 1952

A large number of vintage illustrations and artwork by Walt Disney historically go uncredited. All the other published drawings in books from this time period would credit the author and the artist behind it. Walt Disney would only say that it came from the "Walt Disney Studio". 

So while this artwork is still fantastic in design and color, I have no idea who the artist is behind this illustrated book I have here: Walt Disney's Mother Goose from 1952.

If you would like to see more of the books that I've collected from resale shops over the years I also sell them in my eBay store.

I collect a lot of books from this time period for the artwork looking for inspiration. Along with the color scheme in this book, I like the way the drawings weave around the story text. Another reason why the artist should get credit. That is a bit of extra effort to add for no real payback.

Can I Buy And Resell Copies Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP?

There are two questions that I get asked about publishing my webcomic books on Amazon KDP . 1 - Can I Order A Print Copy Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP? When I started printing on Amazon KDP I also had that question. The reason I put the books together is I was just kind of doing it for myself. I could make a paperback version of my webcomic books and then I and my family could get a copy. It didn't even occur to me that I could actually start selling the book in public.  I thought it was just print-on-demand and then maybe I could order one.  But when I print a book on Amazon KDP I can also get up to 999 copies and sell it on my own!  I was able to get my own copies from Amazon KDP sent to me.  As the author, I can get them at printing cost . So they're at a discounted price. The option to order author copies is right in the KDP publishing setup.  The button is next to the book in KDP. 👇 The other question I get about publishing my book on Amazon KDP... 2 - Can I Sell My A

I'm not even sure I have a copy anymore.

How I use one Gmail address for multiple Soundcloud accounts

Do you know the Gmail "+" trick to use one email for multiple accounts on one service? Here's a little trick I use that works for any service.  I talked about this on the podcast episode I did with artist Mortimur K . In this case, let's say I used up all the uploads I have for my free Soundcloud account . With this trick, I can open a new free account and use the same Gmail address. I don't want to create another Gmail account to sign up again.  Using my one Gmail address for multiple accounts on the same service I don't remember when I learned this but you can alter the name on a Gmail address. Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example. Start with the original Gmail address Add a "+" after the email name Where it says "tom" on the address I can put a "+" after that. Add a "+" after the email name After that "+" I ca
