Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great artbook for the princess collection This hardcover contains the history of how the Rapunzel art direction and story came to be. Some of the text can get repetitive but that's not why you buy the book. It's a treasure trove of rare production stills, sketches, and notes from all the artists who worked on Rapunzel. The book is very thorough, it includes everything you possibly want to know about the designs, down to Rapunzel's "signature hair style".
