About this Item: New York City, NY: HarperCollins Publishers/McSweeneys, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. Unpaginated. Published in 2009. Pictorial book-length account on subject. One of the best books on film adaptation and film-making ever published in our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Spike Jonze's "Heads On And We Shoot: The Making of 'Where The Wild Things Are' (With Complete Screenplay) ". His ground-breaking film adaptation of Maurice Sendak's beloved classic, together with the film itself on two discs. The lavishly produced book is presented in three parts, accordion-style: a) "Heads On And We Shoot", which describes the actual making of the film, with drawings, original artwork, reference materials, and photographs; b) the Screenplay by Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers, interspersed with Interviews and film stills; and c) "Post-Production", which consists of special effects, brilliantly reproduced on the page. "The film incorporates the most dynamic elements of voice performance, live-action puppetry, and computer animation into a live-action adventure story that captures the magic of the book, and takes it to a new dimension. In order to preserve the realistic nature of the film, 'The Wild Things' was not created digitally. Instead, Spike Jonze brings these characters to life in the form of physical suits built by the Jim Henson Company. These creatures, operated by a suit performer, interact with the live actor playing Max on set in front of the camera. After principal photography was finished, CGI was used to make the creatures completely life-like and convincing" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Spike Jonze, Maurice Sendak, and Dave Eggers collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in metallic-silver pen-marker on the front free endpaper by Spike Jonze. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It comes with a pristine copy of the double-disc DVD and Blu-ray combo set, also very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in matching silver pen-marker in front by Spike Jonze. This title is a film classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy (with signed double-disc set) of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. A rare signed set thus. Three of the most brilliant American artist/writers of our time. A fine collectible set. (SEE ALSO DAVE EGGERS' "THE WILD THINGS" TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0061645567.

About this Item: 0, 0. No Binding. Condition: Near Fine. MAURICE SENDAK (illustrator). 1st Edition. MAURICE SENDAK SCARCE ORIGINAL CONCEPT DRAWINGS OF 'ROSIE' FROM "REALLY ROSIE" STUNNING DETAILED CONCEPT DRAWING OF ROSIE GRAPHITE ON THICK VELLUM, 14?X 14? FRAMED This artwork shows an original Maurice Sendak concept drawing, rendered in graphite, of Rosie, the title character from the 1974 animated version of ?Really Rosie,? (voiced by Carole King). Rosie was based the story on a demonstrative little girl who used to sing and dance on the stoop of her building, whom Sendak observed while he was a little boy growing up in Brooklyn. She is depicted from her knees up, gazing directly at the viewer with her hands clenched around her signature boa and a worried expression on her face. Above her and to the right is the instruction in Sendak's handwriting "Top of hat should be [illegible]." The artist's signature is at the lower right of the image. The piece is in perfect condition with a hint of rippling to the velum. Perfect for a collector of Maurice Sendak art. Presented in a new 1 1/2" deep rubbed silver frame, double matted, framed and glazed using UV glass and archival materials. The inner mat is a soft medium taupe tone which nicely enhances the graphite. PROVENANCE:The art was purchased from an Auction House who was commissioned to sell several original illustrations by Maurice Sendak. A copy of the original bill of sale, lot number and the description will be included with the piece, and will provide both provenance and authenticity for the art. This piece is SIGNED by Maurice Sendak lower right. The art is in great condition and presents beautifully. Artwork by Sendak of his main characters is very scarce! ** Maurice Sendak donated all of his original book illustrations to the Rosenbach Foundation in Philadelphia leaving very little of his original artwork available for private purchase. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please see our ABE store for other Original Illustration Artwork and rare books. ******INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING CHARGE OF $100*********. Signed by Author(s).

Near fine book in a near fine dust jacket.

The boards are clean with no fading, and no scribbles. The stunning end papers are in perfect condition with no inscriptions, no owner names, no bookstore stamps, and no bookplates. The internal pages are clean with but a few tiny very very faded dots of foxing to the last and first page, otherwise the pages are very clean with no writing, no stains, no handling marks, no rips, no bent pages, and no foxing. Beautiful clean, crisp, bright copy of a children?s book in hard to find crisp condition! The scarce original first state, first edition dust jacket has benefited from some slight restoration to repair a few small intact tears to jacket, and as such shows in beautiful condition with the usual age toning and light soiling as commonly found with this dust jacket. Slight wrinkle to the front. The dust jacket has strong vibrant colors with no edgewear, no rips, no chips, no rubbing, no stains, no fading, no scribbles and no foxing. The dust jacket is NOT price clipped and has a stated price of $3.50 on the inner front flap, bottom of flap has the requisite code of 40-80, and 1163. The price is not important in the determination of the first state jacket as the first state is exclusively determined by the content of the information found on the inner front and rear flaps.

About this Item: Harper & Row, Publishers, New York, 1963. First edition in the first-issue dust jacket of one of the scarcest and most desirable books in modern children's literature. Oblong quarto, original cloth backed pictorial paper boards. Inscribed by Maurice Sendak with a drawing of Mickey Mouse on the half-title page, "For David, Hi! Maurice Sendak May '80." It was Walt Disney's 1940 feature film Fantasia, starring Mickey Mouse, that inspired 12-year old Maurice Sendak to become a cartoonist. Born the same year that the famous anthropomorphic cartoon character made his first appearance in the the 1928 short film Steamboat Willie, Sendak described Mickey Mouse as "the emblem of happiness and funniness [and] the little brother I always wanted" (Romano, 2012). One of the most avid collectors of Mickey Mouse memorabilia, Sendak has noted that early appearances of Mickey in both film and collectible figurines had teeth, which were later omitted as his character became more popular and his more cruel tendencies were transferred to other characters. Sendak's characters, with plenty of teeth, came to embody not just the adorable and benevolent, but the frightening and dangerous; evoking feelings in the children who read his stories quite unlike those encouraged by the typical illustrated children's tale. Fine in a near fine first-issue dust jacket. This is the correct first state of the dust jacket with no mention of the Caldecott award, and a $3.50 price at top of front flap. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example, rare and desirable in this condition and with a drawing of the character that inspired Sendak's career, Mickey Mouse. Hailed as "the Picasso of children's books," Maurice Sendak produced more than 85 books, of which Where the Wild Things Are is undeniably the most famous, being one of the ten best-selling children's books of all time. "Wild Things!' When Max's sojourn among them unfolded in kinematic splendor in 1963, adults trembled and children reveled. Reaching back into his own Brooklyn childhood, Sendak created the enduring child-hero Max, who overcomes his fears and achieves catharsis in a colorful fantasy tableau. The book was awarded the 1964 Caldecott Medal by the American Library Association" (NYPL Books of the Century 212).
