15th ANNIVERSARY EDITION ENCHANTED WORLD OF RANKIN/BASS: A PORTFOLIO   Arthur Rankin said, "Buy Rick's book!  It's fantastic and beautiful, it's better than the first!  It has much more source material and I have no idea where Rick got it."   Arthur said this a few days ago on a radio show we did together :)  I want to THANK Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass, for making this book a reality.  When I put together the first book and it was released through TIGER MOUNTAIN PRESS in 1997, I thought that was it...I could do no better BUT I was wrong.  This version blows away all of the previous releases and then some.  Also, it is not just a CHRISTMAS book.  We added tons of material from THE KING KONG SHOW, THUNDERCATS, THE BERMUDA DEPTHS, THE DAYDREAMER, WILLY McBEAN & HIS MAGIC MACHINE, SILVERHAWKS, THE JACKSON FIVE SHOW, etc.   There are sections on WHERE ARE THEY NOW? The ANIMAGIC figures, the RANKIN/BASS collectibles, TRIBUTE ART from great artists like MATT POTT, PATRICK OWSLEY, JIM ENGEL, CHRIS MASON, MARK CHRISTIANSEN, etc.  Wes Garlatz laid this thing out in an AMAZING way and updated all the indexes and a few of the episode guides.    We are down to our last few books BUT will be getting a second shipment closer to Christmas day, so hurry!
