With its themes of a beautiful princess, a dashing prince, and love triumphing over powerful magic, “Sleeping Beauty” remains one of the most beloved of all fairy tales. The story was first published by Charles Perrault in 1697. Perrault’s 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.
