review 1: A perfect collage consisting of sparse and dreamy language, beautifully expressive drawings, and sharp photographs. Her beautiful mother, museum objects, broken chairs, dancers in motions, and books make for some of the author's favorite things. This book is one of my favorite things right now. It will stay on my coffee table so I can leaf through its pages when I'm feeling bored or down or clever, and smile at this stunning and picture book for adults.
review 2: Maira Kalman's books (and art) make me feel rapturous. I'm just so glad to be on the same planet - and even be the same species! - as this artist who just gets it. I can't explain what it is she gets. But she does. She gets it. And then she explains it. And you get it too. And then you smile. I bought
... more two copies of this book, one for myself and one for a friend. When I gave it to her, she said - glancing at the cover, "Thanks I'm sure my young kids will love it." So I had to explain, this is not a kids book. It's a picture book for grownups. Later that night, my friend emailed me. "I'm in bed but I can't go to sleep. I'm reading this book you gave me and I cannot put it down. It's your fault."Fault duly noted. less

As always, Kalman's latest is delightful (& thought provoking) in every way.
So charming. So thoughtful. So reflective and reflecting.
All over the place, but hey, it's Maira.
just didn't feel it
