Big Bird

Early Henson Workshop design for the popular Sesame Street character Big Bird. 'Yeah, it was rejected for being weird and frightening and making Frank Oz cry,' laughed Jim Henson in a 1972 interview, 'But boy, I tell ya, the kids would have learned to fucking read.'

From The Story of Grass by Harris and Hughes, 28 pages of words and pictures and the spaces between them, coming soon from Aloha Ino Press.
