#VQ2262 $45.00 $31.50

Maurice Sendak is most famous among children (and their parents) for his raucous picture book Where the Wild Things Are, but the Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator lent his verdant imagination and trademark style to nearly one hundred books over the course of his prolific career. In 2013, the Society of Illustrators in New York City hosted an exhibition of Sendak's work - from children's books to posters, magazine articles, theater designs, and commercial art - a compilation of more than two hundred images now cataloged in this beautiful volume. A dozen essays by authors, historians, curators, book collectors, and other friends and fans encapsulate Sendak's creative influence and literary legacy, creating a wonderful keepsake artists and readers alike are sure to treasure.
