For these fans and anyone who ever dreamed of visiting Oz, Willard Carroll draws from his private collection of more than 10,000 museum-quality pieces to present an unparalleled view of Baum's beloved creations and their influence on popular culture. Organized by decade, this book traces a century of Oz lithography, photography, sheet music, book jackets, stationery, manuscripts, costumes, film props, animation cells, newspaper rotogravure, greeting cards, Halloween masks, theater programs, contracts, maps, advertising fliers, games, toys, puzzles, dolls, and other memorabilia gathered from every corner of the world.
Written by John Fricke, one of the world's preeminent Oz historians, this is the first book in more than two decades to chronicle the entire phenomenon of the legendary Land of Oz and the fascinating history of its creators. With brilliant photography by Richard Glenn and Mark Hill, original artwork, drawings, sketches, blueprints, and stage and movie stills, "100 Years of Oz" is a joyous and unique passport over the rainbow.

This is simply the most beautiful collection of all things Oz one could wish for! With Fricke's typically insightful, readable prose, coupled with gorgeous photos and beautiful design (the collection ain't bad neither!), you couldn't ask for a better way to trip back down the Yellow Brick Road!
