Maurice Sendak Let the Wild Rumpus Start

“There must be more to life than having everything.”
― Maurice Sendak

Today I lost my favorite childrens author Maurice Sendak. He always reminded me to embrace my inner child and built in so many meaningful lessons along the way. Over the past years living in Philadelphia I had fallen back in love with his work because we have what I think is the largest collection of his work housed in the city of brotherly love at the http://www.rosenbach.org/

This hidden gem of a museum in the city is well worth a visit.
The images below are some of Sendaks original notes and scetches that he made in the creation of Where The Wild Things Are that were taken at the Rosenbach Museum. Thank-you Maurice for all your inspiration!
