The Rosenbach is proud to be the major repository for the illustrations and manuscripts of Maurice Sendak (born 1928), creator of some of the world’s best-loved contemporary children’s books. The Rosenbach’s relationship with Sendak dates back to 1966 and the museum currently houses over 10,000 Sendak objects, including original drawings, preliminary sketches, manuscript materials, photographs, proofs, and rare prints of Sendak books. Selections from the collection are always on view in the Maurice Sendak Gallery.
The Rosenbach Museum Shop is the only authorized source for a wide variety of books and prints signed by Maurice Sendak, as well as an assortment of unsigned Sendak books, prints, toys and more. Visit our online shop or call 215-732-1600, x213 to learn more.
