BookMoot sends this in: Here is a nice post about the history of History of Hobbit illustrations at childrens author Tony DiTerlizzis site. Since, he has shared an illustration by Where the Wild Things Are illustrator, Maurice Sendak who was set to illustrate the Hobbit but suffered health issues that prevented the project going forward. Thought this was interesting.
PING to Sarge..

I don’t know that I would have like Maurice Sendak’s illustrations for “The Hobbit”. His always seemed so clunky to me, as I read to our kids. We didn’t read a lot of his stuff, for that reason. I liked beautiful, as well as interesting, and well written, books for our kids.
