THE DANNY ELFMAN & TIM BURTON 25TH ANNIVERSARY MUSIC BOX is accompanied by a fine linen-wrapped hardbound book with gold foil stamping produced exclusively for this collection. This meticulously researched and lavishly illustrated 250+ page book features a foreword by Johnny Depp, as well as rare photos, stories, and interviews from the cast and crew, behind-the-scenes of this classic music—from the early days of Elfman’s band Oingo Boingo to the recent blockbuster film, Alice In Wonderland.

This comprehensive 10"x10" keepsake book, DANSE MACABRE: 25 YEARS OF DANNY ELFMAN AND TIM BURTON is written by acclaimed film-music journalist Jeff Bond and designed by Grammy-winning designer Matt Taylor.

Also accompanying each CD are newly created liner notes by Danny Elfman discussing each expanded score and their bonus material of Additional Masters, Song and Score Demos, Work Tapes, Orchestra-Only Song Mixes, and Foreign Language Versions.
