Catalogue Note

Sendak created this poster in honor of Jewish Book Month, an event sponsored by the Jewish Book Council to promote Jewish books. This annual celebration was initiated Boston in 1925 as a week-long event; it was eventually extended to a full month in 1943 and continues to be observed annually.
