(Epcot, 1977) A rare pre-opening concept book for Epcot Center and future plans for Walt Disney World. Through color photos and reproductions of conceptual artwork, it showcases Walt Disney World as it existed in 1977, and the master plan for the future, which included Epcot, a Lake Buena Vista recreational community, and a shopping village. The book explores each and every aspect planned for Future World, including Spaceship Earth, The Seas Pavilion, The Land Pavilion, The Energy Pavilion, The Transportation Pavilion, The Life and Health Pavilion, The Space Pavilion, and Communicore. The book further explores the World Showcase, beginning with The American Adventure and the Community of Nations. The final pages of the book showcase Disney's technological advances, including the use of solar power, modular construction, transportation technology, and environmental awareness. The entire book measures 17"x11" and 2" thick and features a faux padded leather cover with gold debossed lettering. The book is in very good condition overall, with dents and scuffing to the cover from storage and use. The book offers an amazing and unique look inside the plans and ideas for what would become Epcot.
