"The Principles of Uncertainty" by Maira Kalman

Maira Kalman’s book The Principles of Uncertainty found me in a bookstore this weekend. It is a beautiful book, full of beautiful paintings and photographs, and beautiful writing. I didn’t know how to classify it, as it’s not really a memoir but not really short stories…it’s more like an art journal than anything. It’s lovely.

Today on the Comics Page, we're proud to present an excerpt from The Principles of Uncertainty, a beautifully illustrated, totally unclassifiable book by New York Times op-artist Maira Kalman, out this week from the Penguin Press.
