The Art of Telling Tales – Laughing Place Magazine Expands Empire

Disney 23 maybe the new official mouthpiece magazine for the Walt Disney Company, but there is still just one fan magazine that covers the entirety of the Disney experience with in depth articles and beautiful and rare photos. Now Tales from the Laughing Place Magazine has expanded their empire with the launch of its new blog The Art of Telling Tales and a flickr site.

“Since we launched our first issue back in ’04 our readers have asked us to release additional photographs and artwork that we could not feature in our issues,” Tales Publisher Lee J. MacDonald reveals. “We have decided that an online blog will allow us the flexibility and freedom to build on the stories we have featured in our quarterly publication. We are aiming to update the blog on a near-daily basis with articles that expand on our printed coverage and also cover news and rumors from around all Disney business units. Our editorial team will also offer insight and commentary on recent news events.”

Art of Telling Tales will feature exclusive content from Walt Disney Imagineering’s research library and rare photography from around the Walt Disney Company. The first series of posts will focus on the D23 Expo that was recently held at the Anaheim Convention Center. The posts will include images from the models on show within the Walt Disney Parks & Resorts showcase from angles that only Tales were permitted to photograph.

Tales is a quarterly high-quality advertising-free magazine dedicated to the creativity of the Walt Disney Company and its business units such as the theme parks, movies and musicals. The magazine has a strong emphasis on photography and artwork from the Disney libraries and is printed on quality paper-stock to help preserve the publication for years to come.

Issue 15 is due for release in late 2009. Tales from the Laughing Place Magazine is available as part of a four-issue subscription or individually with worldwide shipping. Issues 2 through 14 inclusive are available as back issues and Issues 1 through 6 inclusive are now available on a CD-ROM in high-resolution PDF for home printing.
