Maurice Sendak, the creative genius behind books such as 'Where the Wild Things Are' and 'In the Night Kitchen', is an illustrator whose work has been seen by millions of people all over the world and who we sadly lost in 2012. We recently re-watched this Tate Shorts rare video interview with the beloved author and artist.

Maurice Sendak, who has given joy to the ages with his wonderful Wild Things books, also created posters for plays, book fairs, art events and Broadway shows, many of them including his brilliant Wild Things. We were verklempt when we learned about his little-known posters!

Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are is one of those stories that is not bound by time, place, age or even nostalgia. Sendak's classic will be celebrating its 50 year anniversary at the Walt Disney Family Museum for the next six weeks. We visited the show last night and suggest that you hurry out to the Presidio to re-live the memories and see a very special collection of original drawings and illustrations for Wild Things and many of your other childhood favorites that you probably didn't realize he worked on.

50 years after Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak's last work has been posthumously published. My Brother's Book is a magical story with smashing stars, riddles, polar bears and underworlds. The story is accompanied by beautiful watercolors perfectly complimenting the text.

No question, we lost a legend last week with the passing of Maurice Sendak, and the New York Times published a portfolio this past weekend titled "Thanks, Maurice," inviting artists to re-imagine and create tributes to the author of Where The Wild Things Are. Geoff McFetridge, Gary Taxali, Jon Klassen, Marc Rosenthal, and Art Spiegelman were just a few of the artists who contributed tributes.

We lost another legend this week, with the passing of Where the Wild Things Are author Maurice Sendak early this morning. He was 83. Sendak illustrated over 100 books and authored over 20 more, but it was his 1963 landmark illustrated book, Where the Wild Things Are, and his character Max, that made Sendak one of the most famed authors of children's literature ever.

Maurice Sendak is back! One of the greatest children's authors is set to release his first book in 30 years, a book he authored and illustrated titled, "Bumble-Ardy." If that sounds familar, it's because it is based on a character Sendak developed in 1971 for Sesame Street, a short that Jim Henson produced. More information after the jump . . .

The Rosenbach Museum and Library was given a nice gift, and an assignment: Take Maurice Sendak's Chertoff mural, once housed in Lionel and Roslyn Chertoff's Upper West Side apartment, and perform a unique conservation and preservation task on what most believe to be the only Sendak mural in existence.
