The Principles of Uncertainty by Maira Kalman. Plus, My new patterns.

Maira Kalman

Not long ago I posted my admiration of Maira Kalman’s work for the Strunk and White book: Elements of Style. Kalman has a new book out called The Principles of Uncertainty. I want to get it.

Perhaps I’ll order it from Amazon. You can too (hence the link).

I created a new Flickr collection for the patterns I’ve been working on. Here it is. Thank you so much Erin and Anna for the feedback so far, it’s so so valuable to me and so nice of you to give. Both Erin and Anna liked this one the best:

    This pattern is beautiful – I’m immediately imagining it on various cloths, from slippery light weights to heavy barkcloth. I’m off to check your flickr set now, but just wanted to say that first.
