If you like Maira Kalman you will love this book I saw the exhibit of her work and collections at the Skirball and because I didn t get to see anything for as long as I d have liked to having been physically pushed out by my little boy , I pull this out all of the time It s got everything from Goethe An Embroidery in Four Parts to paintings of a dog reading and photos of her random collections Plus it has an interesting overview of her career and influences She just has a great sensibility.

    6. Beautiful book created as an exhibit catalog The book captures Kalman s quirkiness, skill and mastery, philosophy It s informative in its text and essays, full of gorgeous reproductions of her works and photos of the installation for the 2010 exhibit in Philadelphia , and ends with a Kalman chronology The book also demonstrates how many of the illustrations from her children s books also stand strongly on their own it s helpful to see them outside the context of a narrative.

    7. I am really loving Maira Kalman lately She can be poignant, funny, deep, silly and thought provoking simply with her paintbrush and a few words I read this book in small bites at lunchtime over a week or so and really did not want to go back to my desk a cozy chair and afternoon of reading was very tempting

    8. This is a collection of paintings from Kalman, very colorful and entertaining and New York amusing, inventive These are paintings from an exhibition, with accompanying commentary on her work, not stories I liked it feels like a throw back to another time, like of Coco Chanel, a world of colorful hip fashion and a slightly surreal pop vision Fun stuff
