Maurice Sendak Interview: Beautiful Animation From Blank On Blank (VIDEO)

On the occasion of what would have been Maurice Sendak's 85th birthday, Blank on Blank has released an animation produced in collaboration with PBS Digital Studios featuring unreleased audio footage of an interview with Sendak. The interview was conducted in 2009 by Newsweek reporters Andrew Romano and Ramin Seetodeh at the author's home in Connecticut.

Part of the same series that included this David Foster Wallace interview, it's a typically heartfelt and moving discussion about childhood and stories.
