From Pen to Publisher: The Life of Three Sendak Picture Books

Rosenbach Museum and Library

2008 Delancey Place Philadelphia PA 19103
  • Wednesday January 25th 2012 at 12:00am to Sunday July 15th 2012 at 12:00am

This exhibit follows the lives of three picture books by Maurice Sendak—The Sign on Rosie’s Door (1960), Outside Over There (1981), and Brundibar (2003)—as they take three radically different paths from pen to publisher.

With dates spanning 43 years, these books 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.
