"Whether they're half-hatched concepts or fully formulated ideas, these imaginative musings-the work of a man who made an impossible world seem completely plausible-show history in the making."- Booklist
This delightful collection of Henson's early drawings, virtually none of which had been published before the original Abrams edition, serves as a map to the boundless imagination of the artist whose characters have educated and enraptured children-and adults-for generations. Filled with creatures of all sorts, these early posters, storyboards, and set and puppet designs celebrate the Muppet creator's unique genius and wild sense of humor.

Jim Henson needs no introduction. For those of us who grew up with The Muppet Show and Sesame Street, Jim Henson's Designs and Doodles reveals how his art came alive over a period of almost 20 years before those shows even began. For those who saw his advertisements and appearances on late-night shows, it is a reminder that he changed television. His creations required the genius of both the visual and the performing arts, mixed with a rolling sense of humor, and all are present here: the early silk-screens show the sensibility of a great artist, the drawings show the thinking process of a powerful designer, and the stories are those of one of the greatest performance artists of our time. The book ends in 1976, when The Muppet Show began its first season, leaving the reader hungry for more, but this archaeological journey goes a long way toward uncovering Jim Henson's world. --Juliette CezzarAbout the Author:
