Celebrate the imagination, passion, and attention to detail invested in each Disney costume within this gorgeous coffee table book! The elegant and adventurous array of dresses, uniforms, and other attire is a feast for the eyes and a fascinating examination of pure craft and of the brilliant, creative minds behind it. The collection begins with a summation of the costumes created for Disney animation, early live action, and television, along with show wardrobes, Audio-Animatronics figures and Cast Members.

The next section details a timeless case study: Cinderella's ball gown. A diverse group of designers has been called upon over the years to address and improvise the creative and practical needs each time the fairy tale Cinderella has been reimagined. Each project has brought with it inherent cultural challenges when bringing a familiar and beloved tale to life again and again, and all have yielded stunning and distinct results. At last, the full galleries (organized by the character archetypes of heroes and villains, and those complex, always interesting, "spaces between") showcase costumes across more than thirty Disney films. At each turn, this volume offers a one-of-a-kind backstage view of remarkable works of art, and it inspires a true appreciation for the highly skilled and talented costumers who created them.

Jeff Kurtti is a leading authority on The Walt Disney Company, its founder, and its history. He is the author of more than thirty books, a writer-director of award-winning documentary content, and a respected public speaker. A Seattle native, Kurtti worked as a production coordinator on the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Arts Festival, followed by two years as the assistant to the president of the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). For several years, he worked for Walt Disney Imagineering, the theme park design division of The Walt Disney Company, and then for the Corporate Special Projects department of Disney. Since 1995 Kurtti has enjoyed a career as an author, writer, and consultant in the motion picture, theater, and theme park entertainment industries. He was creative director, content consultant, and media producer for The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco and a producer of “The Boys: The Sherman Brothers Story”, a critically acclaimed documentary about the famed songwriters.

PRAISE FOR TRAVELS WITH WALT DISNEY: A PHOTOGRAPHIC VOYAGE AROUND THE WORLD

"Historian Jeff Kurtti is the perfect guide in this fascinating, authoritative journal that chronicles Walt Disney's eclectic world travels. The lively text is profusely illustrated with rare photographs and delightful artwork. Highly recommended!" ―John Canemaker, NYU professor and head of Animation Studies

"It's no small feat to do what Jeff Kurtti has done in Travels with Walt Disney:he has assembled an absorbing scrapbook of rarely seen photos, unique artifacts, and revealing quotes that trace the many Disney journeys that would eventually become the Disney tales that shaped our imaginations. There's so much detail here that you'll begin to wonder if Walt ever stayed home. Thank goodness for us he didn't." ―Jason Cochran, Editor-in-Chief, Frommers.com
