And the Pursuit of Maira....

Maira Kalman, a long-standing Librairie favourite, has a new book that came out Tuesday!


And the Pursuit of Happiness... is a history lesson, a view into a beautiful mind, and an illustrated social analysis. Maira Kalman offers a story of the United States of America expressed through very mixed media: photography, paintings, sketches, and pressed leaves.


Whether using photographs of schoolchildren with puffy hairstyles, or describing her crush on Abraham Lincoln, Maira's perspective on the world around her is effervescent, invested, and always genuinely interested.


Who am I kidding, I just wish she'd come here and be my friend, and draw pictures of Leif Ericsson for me.
