“Live your Life. Live your Life. Live your Life.”

RIP Maurice Sendak: “I don’t believe in children. I don’t believe in childhood. I don’t believe that there’s a demarcation. ‘Oh you mustn’t tell them that. You mustn’t tell them that.’ You tell them anything you want. Just tell them if it’s true. If it’s true you tell them.” – Click for 19 more Sendak quotes

In the Dumps – Sendak and Spiegelman walk and talk:


From the NYTimes obit I learned of Sendak’s first published work, Atomics for the Millions (see above) – also that some prudish school librarians had drawn diapers on the naked protagonist of In the Night Kitchen. Rest assured, you will find no librarian added clothing in our copy:
