MAIRA KALMAN je ne-ve-ro-vatna zena. Americka ilustratorka, autor, dizajner, umetnik. Brza, ostroumna, bistra, odgovorna, duhovita - pravi intelectual royalty, u najboljem smislu te reci.

O sebi kaze:
born. bucolic childhood. culture-stuffed adolescence. played piano. stopped. danced. stopped. wrote. discarded writing. drew. reinstated writing. married Tibor Kalman and collaborated at iconoclastic yet successful design studio. wrote and painted children's books. worried. took up Ping-Pong. relaxed. wrote and painted for many magazines. cofounded the Rubber Band Society. amused. children: two. dog: one. (opis uz njen razgovor sa Polom Holdengraberom na NYPL)

Sa Amazona mi je doleteo perfektan rodjendanski poklon za jednu slicnu frajlu - Majrina knjiga The Principles of Uncertainty. Predivno. Ovo je nekoliko nasumicno obrnutih dvolista:






Kolekcija postova koje je priredjivala do aprila 2007. na New York Times blogu, ovo je pravo blago. Kada odlucite da se oslobodite balasta kod pete selidbe i date sve knjige svojoj fakultetskoj biblioteci, a sacuvate samo par inspiraciono kljucnih knjiga, ovo je jedna od tih desetak.

Od pocetka ove godine na istom mestu aktuelan je njen mesecni blog o americkoj demokratiji. Cast je imati priliku uzivo pratiti njene aktuelne putanje.

Plus, nekoliko linkova:
ovo je njen sajt
slusajte je na TED
jedan divan intervju

Za kraj, posluzite se aktuelnom vockom.
OBOZAVAM nar i Majru Kalman.

MAIRA KALMAN is one ab-so-lu-te-ly incredible woman. American illustrator, author, designer, artist. Quick, sharp, precise, responsible, humorous - she's real intelectual royalty, in the word's best sense.

In her own words: born. bucolic childhood. culture-stuffed adolescence. played piano. stopped. danced. stopped. wrote. discarded writing. drew. reinstated writing. married Tibor Kalman and collaborated at iconoclastic yet successful design studio. wrote and painted children's books. worried. took up Ping-Pong. relaxed. wrote and painted for many magazines. cofounded the Rubber Band Society. amused. children: two. dog: one. (taken from the intro to her conversation with Paul Holdengräber on NYPL)

I got this perfect present I ordered for my good friend very similar to Mrs. Kalman. It is her book The Principles of Uncertainty. Lovely. These are a few pretty randomly selected spreads: see images

This book is a collection of posts she made for New York Times blog until April 2007, and is a true treasury. If you decide to make a huge relief by making a huge donation in books and make your moves a lot easier after the fifth one, this is one of a dozen of books you'll keep.

Starting this year, we're all priviledged to be able to follow her new monthly blog on American democracy.

Plus, a few links:
her web site
see and hear her do some magic on TED
one lovely interview here

And for the end, help yourself with some seasonal fruit. I just ADORE pomegranates and Maira Kalman.
