The illustrated woman: Maira Kalman on

Posted by: Tedstaff

Author and illustrator Maira Kalman talks about her life and work — from her New Yorker covers to her children’s books to her newest book for grownups, The Principles of Uncertainty. And yes, in person, she is as wonderful, as wise, and as deliciously off-kilter as her work. (Recorded March 2007 in Monterey, California. Duration: 17:42.)
