Yesterday Maurice Sendak died. He was the author and illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen, Outside Over There, and many other iconic and iconoclastic children’s books. He was 83. The New York Times has a good write-up on his career.
Today, in response to a request from Neil Gaiman, the New Yorker has unlocked a comic by Art Spiegelman, recounting a conversation Maurice and Art had, way back in 1993. It’s quite lovely and funny, and you can check it out over at their website.
