1st printing. By Charles Solomon. With its themes of a beautiful princess, a dashing prince, and love triumphing over powerful magic, "Sleeping Beauty" remains one of the most beloved of all fairy tales. First published in 1697, Charles Perrault's vision of the ageless, enchanted princess slumbering in her vine-encrusted tower has fascinated readers and artists for more 300 years, and this heavily-illustrated book will trace the history of that fascination, which has manifested itself in literature, fine art, poetry, music, and film. The book concludes with the development and creation of Disney's Maleficent, including interviews with Angelina Jolie and director Robert Stromberg; behind-the-scenes details and photography; costumes, props, and makeup; and plenty of movie magic! Hardcover, 10-in. x 9-in., 176 pages, full color. Cover price $40.00.
