Jim Henson's Designs and Doodles is a book based on the 1996 exhibit Jim Henson: Designs and Doodles. The book features many design sketches, storyboards, and other artwork created by Jim Henson, from the early 1950s until 1977. Also included is a foreword written by Karen Falk, archivist for the Jim Henson Company. Jane Henson and Jane Levanthall hosted a reception at the Henson Townhouse in May, 2001 to launch the book. Before there were Muppets, there were Jim Henson's designs and doodles. This delightful collection of Henson's early drawings reveals the boundless imagination of the artist whose characters have educated and enraptured children-and adults-for generations. 100 photos, 30 in full color.

"These imaginative musings-the work of a man who made an impossible world seem completely plausible-show history in the making."-BooklistBert and Ernie were once just scribbles on notebook paper, and the original Oscar the Grouch was purple, not green. Before there were Muppets, there were Jim Henson's designs and doodles. This delightful collection of Henson's early drawings serves as a map to the imagination of an artist whose characters have enraptured generations of children and adults. Almost none of these drawings had been published before the original Abrams edition. From the most cursory of doodles to finished drawings, this whimsical volume of sketchbooks, posters, album covers, story boards, and set and puppet designs celebrates Henson's unique genius and his wild sense of humor.

Love Kermit. Gave to my niece who is 47, (same age as me). We grew up with Sesame Street and the muppets. My brother, ten months younger than I and my niece all enjoyed this book. Kids today have no idea what they are missing. My brother remarked once that it was one of his parenting regrets...could not get his daughters interested, ages now 16 and 12.
