In this beautiful collection of gorgeous artwork, a number of Walt Disney Company artists, designers, illustrators and animators were invited to re-imagine their favorite princesses and portray them in a variety of mediums.

The end product is this collection of art which offers full page color potyrayals of Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, and Jasmine in a number of mediums from watercolor, pastel, and oil paint to colored pencil, mixed media and computer generated graphics.

While some of the artists reinterpreted these popular princesses in new and very personalized ways, others took their inspiration from preeminent painters and rendered the young ladies in a more recognizable classic or modern style.

Along with the more well known royal beauties you'll find Mulan, Pocahontas, Kida and Tiger Lily as well as the newest creation to wear a tiara - Princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog.

Disney animator Glen Keana provides the introduction for this special volume which Disney fans, art aficionados and pseudo princesses will love paging through. A true collectible, this once in a lifetime book proves fairy tales do indeed come true!
