"I'm a tiresomely serious man, as well you know. Everything has to mean something."

-Maurice Sendak

I know I'm not the only one out there who cites dreamy, dark Where The Wild Things Are as one of their favorite childhood books. So I imagine you're just as bummed as I am to find out that Maurice Sendak, the essential children's book author, has passed away. I thought these photos from Dazed were a nice little glimpse into his life. The accompanying interview between Spike Lee, who directed the film version of Where The Wild Things Are, & Sendak is worth a read too.
