- Comments Off on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Illustrated
Cartoonist Evan Dahm needs your help to print his illustrated edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the original book written by L. Frank Baum in 1900. The book is in the public domain, and we’re printing it in a fancy hardcover edition! Evan says:
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a beautiful, dreamlike book, and it’s very different from the adaptations that are more widely-known. In the illustrations, I’ve tried to emphasize the strange atmosphere of its setting, and the sense of being lost and overwhelmed by an otherworldly place. I made almost 100 illustrations for the book: 24 of them are full-page illustrations that begin each chapter. The rest are spot illustrations that emphasize the characters. For the past year, I’ve been publishing this process online at Baum by Dahm.
These books are going to be gorgeous, and the Kickstarter campaign is your opportunity to pre-order one–you can even have it signed by Evan. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is live on Kickstarter now through November 6th!
