And thus with my previous post I discovered the phenomenon called Maira Kalman. Her illustrative narrative instantly lifts my heart from its stoic doldrums. My favourite will still probably be her piece on Benjamin Franklin, but because I really love & respect Abraham Lincoln & because I cannot not post about her brillaint work, here are some pieces of her tribute to him. It is part of her monthly column with the NewYorkTimes called the Pursuit of happiness. Indeed.
Over to Maira Kalman.
