With the anticipated release of Spike Jonze’s amazing-looking adaption of the book it seems like the perfect time for endeavors like this one to pop up. And that’s good; this is a book that’s treasured as a classic and, come on, the movie has Spike Jonze at the helm. It deserves all the buzz it can get as far as I’m concerned.
This project isn’t about the film adaptation, though. Not exactly. It’s simply about honoring and celebrating the wild spirit of Maurice Sendak’s creation. In project organizer Corey Godbey’s own words this is “a visual love letter to the book,” and it’s quite lovely.
Be wild every once in a while, guys. It’s not a bad thing.
