One of the things you learn is that ‘polymath’ doesn’t even begin to describe Silverstein. His creativity extended in so many directions that his archivists must be versed not just in turn-of-the-century world children’s literature, but Waylon Jennings’s deep cuts; not just in reel-to-reel tape preservation, but how to keep an old restaurant napkin scribbled with lyrics from falling apart. And you also learn that Silverstein seemed to have a terrific time drawing, rhyming, and singing his way through life.

Shel Silverstein is one of my all-time favorite creators. 

A journey to the Shel Silverstein archive, from whence the fantastic recent posthumous anthology Every Thing On It was excavated.   (via)
