The Morgan Library has organized an exhibit called “The Little Prince: A New York Story.” This special art show explores Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s time in New York writing and publishing his beloved children’s book.
The items that will be on view include manuscript pages, early drawings, rare printed editions, photos, and letters. It will open on January 24th and run through April 27th.
The Little Prince has become an iconic work. Just last year, fans celebrated the book’s 70th anniversary. According to the library’s official website, this will be “the first exhibition to explore in depth the creative decisions Saint-Exupéry made as he crafted his beloved story that reminds us that what matters most can only be seen with the heart.”
