Description


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.
