Capshaw on Sendak’s Creative Process

Kate Capshaw (Children’s Literature) and Cora Lynn Deibler (Illustration) published “From ‘Wild Horses’ to ‘Wild Things,’ a window into Maurice Sendak’s creative process” in The Conversation. The article teaches us what we can learn through study of the Maurice Sendak Collection at the University of Connecticut’s Archives and Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Center. The collection “contains Sendak’s original sketches, book dummies, artwork and final drafts of his work, amounting to nearly 10,000 items [and] allows us to begin to trace the trajectory of Sendak’s creative process.”
