Description

Artist and Oz archeologist Gabriel Gale brings to life all the creatures and inhabitants from L. Frank Baum’s beloved series, many illustrated here for the first time: wicked witches and their armies, mythical beasts, elemental fairies, robots, insects, one-legged and two-sided people, and many more sky, land, sea, and underground creatures. The Art of Oz also debuts the first-ever “Google Map” of the Land of Oz! Also art from the original books. Very nicely illustrated, with many characters never seen before, full page full color drawings. And lots of textual notes putting all into context in the series.

Gabriel Gale has mapped the country and animated all the creatures he found there.  He has sketched Emerald City the buildings and habitats of the enchanted Land. Through spectacular illustrations, in original and precise style, Gale portrays each character in detail, often with attention to anatomy,  structure,  size and scale.  Gale’s fantastical, vivid, and delightful renderings are also accompanied by excerpts and drawings from the fourteen books in Baum’s Oz series and the most famous inhabitants of Oz — Professor H.M. Woggle-Bug, T.E., Dorothy, the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, Toto, Glinda the Good, and the Wizard — add context to this magical endeavor.

This is the perfect book for the whole family to share and for anyone entranced by the fantasy and everlasting magic of Oz.

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was the best-selling American children’s book of the twentieth century, and the classic 1939 movie of this quintessential American fairy tale left a permanent mark on the hearts and imaginations of devoted fans throughout the world
