You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Bewitching Bayeux For Bedknobs And Broomsticks

As part of our Countdown to Halloween 2017, we turn to the bewitching witchery of Bedknobs and Broomsticks. As noted here, October is Bedknobs month, and Disney's musical fantasy premiered on this day, October 7, in 1971. Below is the interior of the elaborate quasi-parchment-like invitation to the pre-release screenings, (This particular screening was held in Atlanta, Georgia.) The art was adapted from the film's titles, designed by David Jonas based on the famed 11th century Bayeux Tapestry.  (Click on the image for a larger view.)
