The works of Maurice Sendak have delighted young and old alike for generations, and his artwork looks as fresh and timely today as it did when it came out decades ago. Sendak created artwork for all sorts of reasons, like these little known promotional posters for causes ranging from Jewish Book Month to International Children’s Book Day (I’m sensing a theme here).
They feature characters from fables and fairy tales, a few wild things and some kids who are hungry for adventure- and a bowl of chicken soup with rice. Sendak’s art is always a pleasure to behold, and his whimsical character designs are such an iconic part of childhood that they still bring a smile to my face.
