    The image we have of Mickey Mouse is the classic head and two round ears imagined by Walt Disney sixty-four years ago. What is it about this simple set of interconnected spheres that has made Mickey Mouse one of the most recognized faces in modern history? In The Art of Mickey Mouse, artists, designers, illustrators, and cartoonists from around the world have captured the famous mouse who lives in our collective imagination. Mickey, who throughout his history has been a major figure in film and TV, is here newly incarnated by fine artists such as Andy Warhol and Keith Haring, illustrators such as Milton Glaser and Maurice Sendak, and cartoonists such as Charles Schulz and R. Crumb - and even by another American icon, Michael Jackson - into roles both serious and strange, familiar and alien.
