The Rosenbach is the sole repository of the original artwork of famed author and illustrator Maurice Sendak and a foremost authority on all things Sendak. Author of Where the Wild Things Are and nearly 100 other books, Sendak, now 81 years old, chose the Rosenbach to be the permanent home of his work in the early 1970s thanks to shared literary and collecting interests. The Rosenbach's Sendak collection is the largest collection of Sendakiana in the world, with over 10,000 preliminary sketches, final drawings, manuscripts, books, and ephemera.
The DVD, "There's a Mystery There: Sendak on Sendak: A Retrospective in Words and Pictures" explores the masterful storytellers extraordinary career through his own words as the author talks about his favorite characters and the many influences and settings of his richest stories.
