ATG Quirkies: Where the Wild Books are.

Posters by Sendak.downloadMaria Popova celebrates “Maurice Sendak’s Little-Known and Lovely Posters Celebrating Books and the Joy of Reading” in this post on the  Brain Pickings website

In it, Ms. Popova recounts her recent discovery of a surviving copy of the 1986 gem Posters By Maurice Sendak – a first edition signed by Sendak himself no less!  While the book includes Sendak’s posters on a variety of topics and events, Ms. Popova rightly notes that “given Sendak’s love of classical literature and the literary greats who became his lifelong influences, most enchanting of all are his posters celebrating the love of books and the joy of reading, many featuring his iconic Wild Things.”

Fortunately for us, she has included images of a number of these posters. So take a look for yourself and see if you don’t agree.
