New Disney Book on Story

Has anyone got any info on this book? It is available for pre-order on Amazon and it sounds like it's going to be awesome, but I haven't head anything about it. (Not even a cover image yet.)

Walt Disney Animation Studios The Archive Series: Story (Hardcover)

Product Description
With an introduction by John Lasseter and very little else in the way of words, this first book in The Archive Series lavishly showcases the most brilliant story artwork created by such luminaries as Bill Peet, Don DaGradi, Joe Rinaldi, Roy Williams, Ub Iwerks, Burny Mattison, and Vance Gerry for films ranging from Steamboat Willie and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to Alice in Wonderland and One Hundred and One Dalmatians. The art will be displayed in its full glory with all the notes, flaws, and hole-punches that were so much a part of the story development process. Featuring the best examples of story artmany never published before as well as some pieces by unidentified artists, Story will be a must-have art book for collectors, artists, and Disney fans.
