Adapted posthumously from an early concept drawing and the final illustration for the 1978 book, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

Ted Geisel’s (aka Dr. Seuss) insatiable quest to get the most out of life through cultural and literary experiences started in early adulthood, most likely influenced by his mother’s early encouragement to read. In his early 20’s, Ted’s curiosity intensified while experiencing Paris and the pivotal Surrealist art movement. It continued as he trekked across thirty countries in the 1930’s, absorbing foreign cultures that would then go on to inform his work and guide his response to the world around him. In this stunning illustration, Ted highlights that one’s curiosity and desire to learn can fuel life’s experiences, and such experiences can build exponentially upon themselves. As he wrote, “The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
