Sleeping Beauty remains one of the most celebrated of all fairy tales. First published by Charles Perrault in 1697, his vision of the ageless, enchanted princess slumbering in her vine-encrusted tower has fascinated readers and artists for more 300 years - three times as long as the heroine slept.
This heavily illustrated book will trace the history of that fascination, which has manifested itself in literature, fine art, poetry, music and film. Includes lots of behind the scenes content for 2014’s new film Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie.
