I was out at Court Bookstore tonight and nearly lept across the room when I saw a book cover that featured a Maira Kalman illustration. What??!!!! Yay!!!!!!
Run, don't walk, to go peruse this amazing catalogue of her work which ranges from children's book author and illustrator to seamstress to mural artist. It's called Maira Kalman: Various Illuminations (of a Crazy World).
I interviewed the genius Ms. K for Creative Times. Check out the interview HERE.
