The story of Nutcracker, written by way of E.T.A. Hoffmann in 1816, has interested and encouraged artists, composers, and audiences for nearly 2 hundred years. It has retained its freshness since it appeals to the experience of ask yourself all of us share.

Maurice Sendak designed impressive units and costumes for the Pacific Northwest Ballet's Christmas creation of Nutcracker and created much more terrific images particularly for this publication.
