    Complete Set of Four Art Prints from Where the Wild Things Are, Signed by Maurice Sendak

    This series of prints was published in order that collectors, friends, and family of the artist could frame individual pictures without mutilating the books. This was the first time these images are printed on single sheets of paper for the collector market. All were originally published unsigned, but over the years Sendak has autographed a small quantity. The edition size of these prints is not known. A signed set of all four "Wild Things" prints is scarce.
