A new book has been published featuring the work of artist Maira Kalman and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. I absolutely adore her clever, beautiful work. In fact, I’d quite like to frame those flowers at top!
In case you mised them: one of my favorite Kalman musings… and Maira in Paris…
Sarah Ellen says
i seriously want that couch in the second picture! do you think it could hop out of the painting and into real life?
Dancing Branflake says
This looks so fresh and lovely. I agree whole heartedly that framing would be needed.
Katie Armour says
Sarah Ellen — It may be tough, but I say give it a go : ) You have excellent taste in couches!
Dancing Branflake — Yes, I do think it would be quite charming with a frame. I’d hate to damage the book though. Perhaps I need one copy to chop up and frame and another for my bookshelf : )
Ohhhh Maira Kalman. Thank you for posting this. I adore her beyond all reason.
Thanks for your sweet message on my blog!
love her work.
so witty and so smart.
I too love Maira so very much. She is in a league of her own that lady. I have every book, both children’s and adult, and one of my most treasured possesions is a framed original print of hers. Her blog on NYT was magical. My sister gifted me her newest book the night before I left for San Francisco. It came along with me on the plane in my carry-on! xo
