Today on Cool Stuff We Get In the Mail: Maira Kalman has a new book coming out! It’s called My Favorite Things (Oct. 21), and it’s a delightful collection of paintings with tidbits of wisdom and whimsy. There’s even a Lydia Davis poem (one of my favorite things). The book will accompany an exhibit that Kalman curated for the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
If you like history, lovely illustrations, and quirky insights, check out Maira Kalman! We have lots of examples of her work in our collection, including the wonderful In Pursuit of Happiness.
