The Lion King!

The Lion King.
Books and Posters

"With some films a book is sometimes written about the story. Or that the movie is based on a film. Well in the Lion King, not one but some 20 to 30 books were written for the film. They were all based on the film, yet some were different. As for other reading type stuff, postcards, letterheads, magazines you guess it they had it. So I had to collect it. As for posters. I ran out of wall space quite quickly." - Stuart McNabb ( Certified Lion King Addict )

Item from the collection of Stuart McNabb. Item from the collection of Tzup Chen.
