Walt Disney Uncle Scrooge...Foreword by Carl Barks...Abbeville Press
Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge McDuck: His Life And Times...Written & Drawn by Carl Barks...Celestial Arts
These are hefty compilation volumes featuring the Disney Ducks. The first two are by many artists and writers through the decades; the third volume is exclusively by the great Carl Barks. I posted these pics to make a comparison. The first is from an old Gold Key Digest; you can see the subtle and delicate colors possible on newsprint, but there is a certain amount of color bleed and offset from the line. The second is from Donald Duck and His Nephews, which was recolored on a computer program; accurate, yes, but flat and much less subtle. Nice, but no wabi-sabi.
