speaking & signing
the new illustrated gift edition of
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz


In this dazzling full-color gift edition, L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is brought to life with specially commissioned illustrations by contemporary artist and designer Michael Sieben.

Follow the yellow brick road with Dorothy and her friends as they travel to the Emerald City in search of the great Wizard of Oz in this new, complete and unabridged edition of the classic tale that winds its way from Kansas to faraway places and back. From the land of the Munchkins to the deadly poppy field, from encounters with ferocious Kalidahs, Winged Monkeys, and Fighting Trees to battles with the Wicked Witches of the East and West, the magic of Baum's story is beautifully reimagined through the extraordinary art of Michael Sieben. 

Michael Sieben received his BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin in 1999. He was one of four founding members of Camp Fig Gallery (2002-2006) and is a founding member of Okay Mountain Gallery (2006-Present.) His work has been shown throughout the United States as well as Japan, London, Mexico, and Peru. Michael works as a professional illustrator and designer primarily within the subculture of skateboarding and has been a staff writer and illustrator for Thrasher Magazine since 2004. In 2008 he and his friend Stacy Lowery launched their own skateboard brand, Roger Skateboards. Gingko Press in association with Upper Playground recently published a 96 page book of his artwork titled: There's Nothing Wrong With You (Hopefully.) Michael currently lives and works in South Austin in a red brick house with his wife Allison, their two cats, and 5 raccoons in the backyard.
