Atomics for the Millions


In a recent article in the New York Times about Maurice Sendak’s art, there was mention of his first illustrated work, “Atomics for the Millions,” which he created at the age of 18. The story is here, along with a few illustrations:

Here’s a link to the New York Times item:

If you search “atomics for the millions” in google images, you will see many more images from the book – they are delightful. They are probably protected by copyright, so I won’t include any here, but do go and look at them.
