The Principles of Uncertaintyby Maira Kalman
Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
Part personal narrative, part documentary, part travelogue, and part chapbook, this compilation of Kalman's "New York Times" columns form an intricately interconnected world view and an idiosyncratic inner monologue.
