The Wonderful Wizard of OZ Illustrated by Michael Sieben - Reputable Texan contemporary artist and designer, Michael Sieben was recently commissioned by Harper Collins to illustrate L. Frank Baum’s classic story, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

With all the hype about the new blockbuster film, Oz the Great and Powerful (out in theaters in two weeks), Harper Design could not have picked a better time to revive the outdated look of the famous story. It would have certainly been a shame if the story’s main characters were forever linked to the glamorous faces of Mila Kunis, James Franco, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz instead of the now amazing new characters developed by Michael Sieben.

With over sixty un-traditional, full-color illustrations included throughout the book, the dazzling journey along the yellow brick has become an exhilaration stroll through a contemporary art gallery. The beautifully reimagined takes on Dorothy, Toto and all their interesting friends and enemies will surely have you and your kids giddy with excitement.

OZ The Great And Powerful Official Trailer - From the producer of “Alice In Wonderland” and the director of the “Spier-Man Trilogy” comes Disney’s new fantastical adventure; Oz The Great And Powerful.

Synopsis:

When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, a spectacular world filled with colourful characters, and dream-like settings, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot — fame and fortune are his for the taking. That is until he meets three beautiful and mysterious witches; Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting.

Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into Oz the Great and Powerful wizard, but into a better man as well.

Look for Oz The Great and Powerful to hit theaters in March 2013.
