got and want

For Mother's Day I received the new Maira Kalman book, The Principles of Uncertainty (pictures above). It is such a treasure. A yearlong journal and column for The New York Times, Maira's meanderings sound a lot like Milan Kundera's philosophy ... all comments are food for thought.

And then there are two books that I am wanting. What It Is (pictures above) by Lynda Barry was reviewed this past Sunday in The New York Times. It looks amazing. Lynda takes us through her creative methods. It looks like one of those books that you could sit with for hours. The other book is Sometimes I Think, Sometimes I Am (pictures below). Illustrated by Sara Fanelli, with copy by Steven Heller and Marina Warner. It is poetry and art all in one.
