A gooding Sendak

Cynthia Gooding Sings Turkish and Spanish Folk Songs   Elektra Records   (1953)   Cover Illustration by Maurice (“Where the Wild Things Are” and “In the Night Kitchen”) Sendak.   These drawings remind me of Edward Gorey a bit.   Many great artists and illustrators did covers early in their careers – both records and books.   Search the site for Gorey, Warhol, Crumb, Ben Shahn, Miro and on and on.
