Pen to Publisher - The Life of Three Sendak Picture Books

Taken from the Rosenbach Museum's website:

On display fromTuesday, January 24, 2012 to Sunday, July 15, 2012

Every book has a life of its own: the flash of insight that inspired its creator; the negotiations among authors, publishers, and printers to produce it; and the readers who cherish and critique it. This exhibition follows the lives of three picture books by Maurice Sendak: The Sign on Rosie’s Door (1960), Outside Over There (1981), and Brundibar (2003). Spanning more than 40 years, each of these books was inspired and produced in radically different ways by Sendak and his collaborators. Together they reveal how Sendak pursued and preserved a core idea or character through his own artistic refinements and the ever-changing techniques and technologies of the publishing industry.

  1. Thanks for every other great article. Where else could anybody get that kind of information in such an ideal way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I'm on the look for such information.
