Book Description

5 Nov 2013

An over-the-top, beautifully designed book that commemorates the seventy-fifth anniversary of The Wizard of Oz. Officially licensed with Warner Bros., this collectible edition features accessible text, a host of never-before-seen ephemera, and nine removable features.

Written by the foremost authorities on the subject—Jay Scarfone and William Stillman—and designed in close collaboration with Warner Bros., The Wizard of Oz: The Official 75th Anniversary Companion delivers an entertaining and interactive experience, transporting readers over the rainbow and into the wonderful Land of Oz. The authors detail filmmaking secrets—the inspiration behind the film's realistic tornado; why Dorothy's shoes were ruby-colored; and how the filmmakers got a fleet of monkeys to fly—and reveal never-before-seen artwork from their personal collection, including, but not limited to, rare stills, Technicolor test frames, and costume and set illustrations.

Additionally, the book will contain nine removable features as well as several innovative graphic components. More than your average anniversary edition, this book promises to be the most definitive look at The Wizard of Oz yet. It is comprehensive in its scope yet accessibly written and beautifully designed—perfect for The Wizard of Oz fans, film buffs of all ages, and collectors.
