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: Harper & Row, New York, 1974. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. reprint. Oblong 4to 11" - 13" tal; 37 pages; Early reprint. Inscribed and signed by Sendak in June of 1982. This 1974 reprint was made from new engravings of the original artwork. This copy was inscribed and dated by Sendak in June of 1982 to Robert Sxxxxxx by Maurice Sendak. Sxxxxxx's bookplate is mounted on the front pastedown. Laid-in at front is an invitation (single, printed pictorial card) to the opening night reception at the Rosenbach Museum & Library on June 8, 1982 - Sendak being the Guest of Honor. Sadly, though Sendak is not stingy with his autograph, his signature has increasingly become the subject of forgers and charlatans. This example has a solid provenance with the added inscription manuscript and the ephemeral material retained by the original owner, to whom the book is inscribed. The dust jacket is bright and clean with crisp edges and lush illustration wraparounf. Caldecott medal label attached at front. Non bar coded ISBN to rear panel. Curiously, the book has been bound upside down to the covers and thus I hgave downgraded the condition of the book to VG, though in actual condition it is very nearly Fine as is the dustjacket. ; Signed by Author.

The story of Max, King of the Wild Things, continues on in this wonderful book. In fine unread condition in a fine dustjacket. While the true 25th Anniversary Edition was issued by Harper & Row in 1988 before it became HarperCollins in 1990, HarperCollins then reissued this later edition using the new engravings made from the original art in 1988 and the 25th Anniversary format. This edition features a copyright renewal date of 1991 on the copyright page along with "First Harper Trophy edition, 1984," "25th Anniversary Edition" and "HarperCollinsPublishers" is in lower case and partially in italics. The actual publication date is unknown. But a beautiful book and wonderful illustrations and an important scarce signature. Seller Inventory # 1265
