The Art of Maurice SendakBook - 1984
A book which contains many images of the well-known author/illustrator in the United States, Maurice Sendak. He is perhaps best known as the man who encouraged timid children (and parents) to venture Where the Wild Things Are, who revealed what goes on In the Night Kitchen and who proclaimed the unsung virtues of Chicken Soup with Rice. This book contains early sketches, ideas that were never developed and penned fantasies created while listening to music. There is also an accompanying personal account of the artist's life.
