My one quibble is that except for a short introduction there are no comments or background on when and for what purpose the posters were created. To a great extent the posters speak for themselves,and are a delight to the eye and the spirit. I only wish I could get copies for Christmas goifts to all my friends...
Happily, this collection is beautifully colored. The posters are about 12 by 19 inches and include some of Sendak's most-loved images. The real treasures are those that had not been published as parts of books. Maurice Sendak had an amazing, creative vision, and even his scary monsters have something affable - maybe even lovable- about them. Maybe he was trying to tell us something about judging by appearances, hmm?
This is a 10 star book.

Wonderful collection of Sendak art! There are many posters I had never seen before. Looks great with my Where the Wild Things Are in our school library.Published 18 months ago by Amazon Customer
I expected something more colorful and fun than the book turned out to be. I love Maurice Sendak and won't give up on his work.Published on March 21, 2013 by K. Drabek
