-----------hardcover, about 11.75w x 10.75h inches, a Near Fine example, in a Near Fine dustjacketa bit of sunning to the spine and about an inch of the front panel, 278 pages, colour and b&w images throughout, ---"Creator of Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen, Higglety Pigglety Pop!, and other illustrations for dozens of other memorable children’s books, Maurice Sendak ranks among the best-known, best-loved artists in America. For nearly 30 years, he has spoken to the child-mind in young and adult alike. A perennial best-seller, he is winner of both the Hans Christian Andersen Medal and the Caldecott Medal. –Sendak’s life and work are explored in affectionate detail in this charming, fun-filled book, containing 94 full-color illustrations and over 165 black-and-whites. Author Selma Lanes has drawn upon many conversations with him as well as three years of formal research and interviews to write this biography. Easy and intimate, it is enhanced by perceptive quotations from Sendak himself, who cooperated fully in the book’s preparation. --Appropriate to Sendak’s feeling that books should be playful, this book contains a full-color facsimile of the tiny mock-up that he first made for the story that would become Where the Wild Things Are. In addition, there are glimpses of the artist’s private world in fantasy sketches, photographs of a group of mechanical toys he designed, and three full-color fold-outs of works from books and films as they’ve never been seen. --Here is a unique world of imagination, straight from the wonderfully creative mind of Maurice Sendak"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///NOT SIGNED ---GUARANTEED to be AVAILABLE///
