Maira Kalman

The New York Times has another of the monthly features by artist Maira Kalman. This month's installment is about the history of the courts. Click here to see the entire feature. This is one of the comments on the piece: you are one of the best writers ever and if you were my neighbor i would weed your garden for free just because you understand what is important in the world and how to illustrate it nicely.

  9. What a treat - the illustrations, the stream of consciousness insights, the whole thing. I love the last part about 'the most important thing' - very appropriate given a situation I had yesterday with my 11 year old. I am going to quote this to her!

  10. I've only discovered Maira Kalman in the last four months or so and I adore her. I don't know how I managed to miss her before that. She's wonderful!

  12. Love the art. Love the storytelling. Like a picture book for grownups. Thanks for posting it, Meg, for those of us who didn't get to see it firsthand.
