Publisher Comments:

Maira Kalman paints her highly personal worldview in this inimitable combination of image and text

An irresistible invitation to experience life through a beloved artist?s psyche, The Principles of Uncertainty is a compilation of Maira Kalman?s New York Times columns. Part personal narrative, part documentary, part travelogue, part chapbook, and all Kalman, these brilliant, whimsical paintings, ideas, and images?which initially appear random?ultimately form an intricately interconnected worldview, an idiosyncratic inner monologue.

Synopsis:

Kalman paints her highly personal world view in an inimitable combination of image and text. The result is a book that is part personal narrative, part documentary, and part travelogue. Her whimsical paintings, ideas, and images address the larger questions of identity and humanity.

About the Author

"My absolute favorite book of recent memory: an exquisite and delightful and peculiarly illustrated memoir about . . . well, the search for the meaning of life. I will be giving this book to everyone I love."

-Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

I am very seriously considering buying this book for about 5 of my friends. Not for the applicable wintertime gift-giving holiday. Just cuz. It's that good.
