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: New York: Harper & Row, 1963, 1963. Oblong quarto. Original cloth-backed pictorial paper boards. With the Sendak-designed dust jacket. A fine copy, in very good, lightly toned jacket, price-clipped, short closed tears around head of spine panel, yet still a nice, unrestored example. Illustrated throughout by Sendak. First edition, first printing, first issue. Criticized at the time of publication for its darker elements, Where the Wild Things Are was soon acclaimed as a triumph of children's storytelling and book design; it has remained a classic of 20th-century children's literature, and was adapted into a film in 2009. There were multiple issues of the first edition, but this copy is the earliest, distinguished by the Library of Congress number 63-21253 to the title page, the codes 40-80 and 1163 to the front flap, and the absence on the rear flap of the mention of the Caldecott Award bestowed upon the book on publication - the winning of such a prestigious prize compelled the publishers to recall the entire edition and change the text on the dust jacket to include the achievement.
