One of the highlights of the most recent D23 Expo was the beautiful exhibition about the art of Disney costuming.

This new book is basically the catalog of the exhibition. It is a large and gorgeous book.

However, from a pure Disney history standpoint I find it disappointing, as it focuses almost solely on the costumes from Disney's most recent live-action movies. Only 23 pages out of 176 discuss the costumes from the older Disney movies. I understand the decision, from a marketing standpoint, but from a Disney history angle, this book is not a "must have."
