Author Maurice Sendak passed away in 2012, and the world of children’s literature is consequently a poorer place.
The groundbreaking writer and illustrator is perhaps best known for Where the Wild Things Are, which was first published in 1963. The classic has never gone out of style, delighting kids and parents for generations and inspiring all kinds of tributes and adaptations, including the 2009 feature film and this magical art print titled “An Ode to Wild Things.”
A charming piece by artist Craig Watkins, it depicts runaway tyke Max and impulsive, rumpus-loving wild thing Carol. Max sets sail on the wavy hair of Carol, bound for adventures unknown, but at least he has a friend. The characters are instantly recognizable, but the style is original and whimsical. It’d make a kid-friendly and nostalgic accent for common spaces or a bold centerpiece for a child’s bedroom.
Available in sizes starting at 8 by 10 inches on up through a large 28 by 37 inches, it’s printed on natural white, matte cotton rag and archival paper to ensure long life for the vibrant colors and has a one inch border for framing. The design itself can also be applied to many other products available for purchase.
