About This Item

1963. Print. New. Maurice Sendak. Lithograph print by Maurice Sendak on Paper. SIGNED PRINT. Size: 23" x 11" (590mm x 275mm). Written and illustrated in 1963 by Maurice Sendak, Where The Wild Things Are is one of the most popular picture books ever published. The book has been adapted into an animated short, an Opera, and a motion picture, but the picture book itself is still in print over 50 years after it's initial publication. This gorgeous print was published in 1971 as an edition specially re-photographed from the original artwork held at the Sendak Archives at the Rosenbach Museum & Library. The result is this fabulous collector's edition panoramic print presenting Sendak's entire painting, as opposed to having to see it printed with the gutter of the book in the centre of the image. This print was hand signed in full by Sendak as part of 200 prepared to accompany an exhibition to Asia. Copyright 1963 printed on reverse.

Synopsis

Where the Wild Things Are is a 1963 children's picture book by American writer and illustrator Maurice Sendak, originally published by Harper & Row.

According to HarperCollins, the book has sold over 19 million copies worldwide as of 2008.
