i am sooooo in love with maira kalman, er, i mean her work of course. many years ago my then friend fran gave me a children's book of hers and i was immediately hooked. today i was browsing amid the recently unlocked pages from the ny times online (they decided they got more money from the ads than from making us pay for select items), and was reminded of the blog kalman did for them earlier this year. i think i posted something from it then. go and see for yourself!
here is an interview with her from a couple of years ago.
