From the promo material for John Fricke's new book, The Wonderful World Of Oz:

The wonderful world of Oz is a magical place—and has been for generations of Americans since L. Frank Baum penned his enduring classic in 1900. With the 1939 movie starring Judy Garland, Oz was forever woven into our culture. Over the course of the 20th century, Oz continued to capture the hearts of the American people—as well as people all over the world.

This book documents that magical journey through beautiful photographs of the world’s largest collection of Oz memorabilia. Whether it’s first-edition covers, a munchkin costume, or the Wicked playbill, the iconic items on these pages tell the story of America’s most beloved fairy tale. Come over the rainbow and see why there truly is no place like Oz.

John Fricke is the author of The Wizard of Oz: An Illustrated Companion to the Timeless Movie Classic, The Wizard of Oz: The Official 50th Anniversary Pictorial History, Judy: A Legendary Film Career, Judy Garland: World’s Greatest Entertainer. He is a two time Emmy Award-winning producer for PBS American Masters and A&E biography documentaries about Judy Garland. He lives in New York City.

John Fricke is seen here hosting the premiere of the 3D version of The Wizard Of Oz at the world famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

Mr. Fricke will be in New York City signing copies of his new book, The Wonderful World Of Oz, on Thursday, November 21 between 5-7 p.m. at Books of Wonder, 18 W. 18th Street.
