Disney Villains Book Design
First, can we just say how cool it is that the dust jacket and the inner covers are DIFFERENT? Totally awesome. Some of the books are filled illustrations and others are not. Showing all sides of our favorite Disney Villains, these books cover the range of human emotion here. Betrayal is a theme, Magic is a heavy theme, and every story is connected with the others.
How the Stories Connect
While each of these stories can stand alone, as a set, they connect people, lands, and themes. The illustrated family tree may show you characters you don’t know, BUT, if you look closely, we’re sure you’ll be able to recognize some names. And soon see how they end up being connected in the strangest of ways.
