'Each page is a film buff's dream...a serious piece of film scholarship in its own right'
'What a magnificent achievement! No one has ever explored the making of this milestone feature with such thoroughness, or with the ability to place it in the larger context of movie history as well as the Disney timeline.'
'Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is one of the true landmarks of film history. J.B. Kaufman’s book The Fairest One of All is by far the most complete telling yet of the making of this spectacular film, which paved the way for a medium and industry that has been healthy and vibrant for 75 years. Filled with phenomenal stories, details, and artwork, this book is a treasure equal to that of the movie itself. If you love Snow White, Disney, or animation, this book is a must-have.'
(John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios)
‘A very impressive book, one of the most complete Making Of books I've seen so far!’
‘The innovative artistry behind the animated screen classic is shown here in dazzling colour and detail.’
'The Fairest One of All is a magnificent book, truly a one-off, and an absolute must-read and must-own for fans of Disney, animation, and even film! Congratulations to J.B. Kaufman and co. on an absolute triumph, celebrating arguably Walt Disney's greatest triumph, 75 years on.'
'An absolute essential for anyone interested in film, animation and Disney itself, it’s a great companion piece to The Illusion of Life. It is utterly engrossing and the descriptions give you an insight into a world you simply couldn’t imagine.'
'An extraordinarily beautiful volume. It’s fair to call this the definitive study of Walt Disney’s landmark animated feature, not only because Kaufman, a meticulous film historian, has dug deeper (and longer) than anyone else into that history. This oversized volume is lavishly produced and is a credit to the Walt Disney Family Foundation.'
'This book, highly illustred, presented in large format so the pictures make an impact, is a gem. It should be on the shelves of anyone interested in film, the cinema, animation, and anyone who loves beautiful books.'
