Celebrate the imagination, passion, and attention to detail invested in each Disney costume within this 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 new Disney Editions Book, The Art of Disney Costuming: Heros, Villains and Spaces Between, was inspired by the Walt Disney Archives’ exhibition Disney Heroes & Villains: The Art of the Disney Costume, which was on display last month at the D23 Expo 2019. It may be surprising for many that the core subject of this new book is live-action films from the past three decades or so and not the animated classics. Director of the Walt Disney Archives Rebecca Cline explains :
We wanted to move the story forward here, and bring the current Disney not of the Walt era into the spotlight. It allowed us to really focus on the best in design and craft in the current Disney cinematic canon—and frankly, in the current cinematic canon, period. These are today’s top costuming talents, at the peak of their form.
Explore the characters, stories, history, and currency of Disney in a whole new way, and with a different and new appreciation. The Art of Disney Costuming: Heroes, Villains, and Spaces Between is now available for purchase .
