Synopsis: Illustrator by day, surrealist by night, Ted Geisel created a body of previously little-known work that he called his "Midnight Paintings," and which is now known as "The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss." This irrepressible and soulful collection redefines Ted Geisel as an iconic artist. For sixty years, his "Secret Art" allowed Geisel to expand his artistic boundaries without the confines and pressures of commercial deadlines and influences. This volume exuberantly juxtaposes Geisel's "Midnight Paintings" with his best-loved children's books because this was how Dr. Seuss constructed his creative life-his days devoted to literature for children, his nights to letting his mind and palette wander to even stranger shores. Inevitably, Geisel created images in his private artworks that would find their way into his literary projects. The iconic artwork packed into these pages helps us understand that it isn't always a straight line from here to there that matters . . . but rather the fun of the journey that really counts.
