Disney to Reissue The Art and Flair of Mary Blair

I was just browsing on Amazon and spotted this listing for a deluxe updated edition of The Art and Flair of Mary Blair to be published next February by Disney Editions. The book by John Canemaker was originally published in 2003 and has been out of print for a while.

As someone who doesn't have the first edition (probably a good thing since, judging from the comments, the color reproduction wasn't perfect) this is something I want to get. The art Blair created for Disney productions like Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland is some of the greatest in animation history.

I'm hoping the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco put on an exhibition of their Mary Blair originals-maybe the book re-issue indicates a tie-in?
