Book Review - The Art of Maurice Sendak

What an awesome career Sendak had. This big book is packed with samples of his illustrations - children's book, posters, theater design, opera - plus a look at his creative inspiration.

"Creator of Where the Wild Things AreIn the Night KitchenHigglety Pigglety Pop!, and the illustrations for dozens of other memorable children's books, Maurice Sendak has ranked among the best-known and best-loved artists in America for nearly thirty years. Now his life and work are explored in affectionate detail in this charming, fun-filled book, enticingly illustrated with hundreds of the award-winning illustrator's fantasy sketches, black-and-white squiggly line drawings, full-color fold-outs, and working dummies of his most important works. "
