I treated myself to the lovely book principles of uncertainty by maira kalman the other day, in yet another installmant of my ongoing book buying jag. And when I say treat, I mean treat with a capital T! What a special and delightful book, of course, beautifully illustrated in the now famous kalman painterly style we all know and love. What I'm enjoying, in additon to all the visual beauty, is the lovely meandering story, thoughtful consideration and philosophical questioning of this book, all of which are delivered in a wry, sensitive and somewhat ironic voice. I find myself parcing out sweet moments to read a few more pages and then setting it down quickly so I don't finish it too fast. I love this book, and want to give it to everyone I know. Honestly, run, don't walk to pick one up for yourself or someone you love. My guess is that you will most certainly not regret it!
