Sinopsis: Nearly three hundred reproductions of the famous illustrator's work over the years, including finished illustrations, sketches, penned fantasies, and stage-set designs, are accompanied by an account of Sendak's life and career

Review: In a nutshell, The Art of Maurice Sendak is simply stunning. Page after page of lavish full-color illustrations and black-and-whites from one of America's best-loved children's artists adorn this hefty volume. Sendak, best known for the charming and timeless Where the Wild Things Are, never fails to amuse and astonish with his creative wizardry. He was talented from the cradle, and his early works from the 1940s are given due recognition here--reflecting his fascination with the small intricacies of being human, and his devilish sense of humor. Even a stuffy physics textbook from 1947 is given the Sendak touch, as atoms, molecules, and chain reactions take on the form of people jiving and swinging. Always the artistic adventurer, Sendak experiments with many different forms--from the fairy-tale-like pen-and-ink drawings of Higglety Pigglety Pop! to the beautiful watercolor pieces that illustrate Mr. Rabbit and the Lovely Present. Virtually every page contains another Sendak gem--be it a quick sketch, an exquisite portrait of his mother or sister, or the preliminary drawings from Where the Wild Things Are. Three huge fold-outs make for an extra-special treat.

The book's rich text is exemplary--based on interviews, conversations, and extensive research by Sendak's close friend Selma Lanes. The author invites us into the very special world of Maurice Sendak, a place of fantasies and wonderment, a land where adults can be children--and never grow up. --Naomi Gesinger

Descripción Bodley Head London, 1981. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Fine. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Fine. 1st Edition... ORIGINAL WILD THING DRAWING on the front end paper makes this wonderful survey of the artist's work a supreme collectable. Maurice Sendak has drawn the picture and inscribed it thus: 'For Peter Kettle BOO! Maurice Sendak May '82'. This is a perfect first printing of the UK first edition. Original pictorial cloth covers with Sendak illustration from 'Where the Wild Things Are' printed on front and back, covered with a transparent glassine wrapper with white lettering on spine, front cover and inside turn backs, terracotta end-papers. 261 illustrations, including 94 plates in full colour, 3 folding plates and one popup illustration, with a chronology of books and index. Sendak, born in Brooklyn and now in his eighties, gained widespread international acclaim after writing and illustrating 'Where the Wild Things Are', which was turned into an opera and recently a film. Before Where the Wild Things Are, Sendak was best known for illustrating Else Holmelund Minarik's Little Bear series of books. This wonderful and large scale survey of his work has never been surpassed, and this unique copy is highly desirable. Language: eng Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0.
