We’re off to see the Wizard

0

Our magical month would not be complete without a trip down the Yellow Brick road with Dorothy, Toto, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow.  

The Wizard of Oz can really only be described as magical.  Originally published in 1900, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was written by L. Frank Baum and since the moment people began to read the stories of this mystical land they have been captivated.  Quickly the book was turned into a Broadway musical and then in 1939 the hit movie adaptation starting the stunning Judy Garland.

The story of a young girl who is swept up in a tornado and finds herself in a strange land.  Her quest to make her way home, back to Aunt Em and her farm is a long one that sees her encounter many unusual beings and and creatures, from the Munchkins to Winged Monkies.  Her journey is not easy though and she must avoid the evil clutches of the Wicked Witch of the West.

If you grew up with this book, the film or one of the many adaptations that have been created over the years, then it is almost certain you will love Spineless Classics version of Baum’s much loved book! 

 

What better way to celebrate your love of this absolute classic, than having every single word on one single poster, framed and displayed on your wall?  The ingenious design of this poster, shows each and every page in the shape of the Emerald City, a cut out of the Yellow Brick Road weaving its way towards the famous hub of activity.  The entire piece is finished by a small hot air balloon in the top right hand corner, which we wont explain, just in case you haven’t read the book or seen the film.

This is a great gift for anyone who is a fan of Baum’s incredible imagination and is available for as little as £34.99 from Spineless Classics.  The poster measures 500 x 700 mm (1911/16 in x 279/16 in) and is printed using lightfast ink, ensuring that it will not fade after exposure to the sun.
