First up is the 1987 book written by Richard Holliss and Brian Sibley: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs & the Making of the Classic Film. This book was republished in 1994 for the re-release of the VHS tape. This book has three sections: the first is a history of the behind the making of the film, the second is a retelling of the story where the illustrations are all production art, the final section discusses the film's impact. This is one of the most complete books about Snow White history. Below are pictures of the three versions I own:
|This version came in a VHS box set|
This next book is all about the beautiful concept art by Gustaf Tenggren: Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This was published in 2009.
Next is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The Art and Creation of Walt Disney's Classic Animated Film. This book was released when the Walt Disney Family Museum had their Snow White exhibit. It is a fantastic collection of production art.
Ninth on the list is a linen book. These Whitmore publishing books are so detailed and the extra large size makes them a great statement piece in the collection. Below are a few of my favorites.
The last and final book on the top ten list is The Fairest One of All: The Making of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This is the most complete history of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I've been reading through this impressive book and there are a lot of stories I haven't heard before.
