“There’s a Mystery There: Sendak on Sendak,” at San Francisco’s Contemporary Jewish Museum through Jan. 19.

If you guys are in the San Francisco area don’t forget to check out Maurice Sendak’s Art exhibit. There’s over 50 years worth of books and illustrations on display.

One of the most interesting things Sendak talks about his process of the “other story”.“When you hide another story in a story, that’s the story I am telling the children,” Sendak once said. “It’s the two levels of writing – one visible, one invisible – that fascinate me most. There’s a mystery there – a clue, a nut, a bolt, and if I put it together, I find me.”
