Reviewers were not faint in their praise of The Principles of Uncertainty, even if they spent most of their energy attempting to describe it. And no wonder: the list of items that Maira Kalman describes in the book could almost fill a book itself, even without her illustrations. Readers who are unfamiliar with Kalman's work but respond to even a few items on that list should probably take a look at Principles. Those who know her childrens books or illustrations will be excited to see her take on a broader range of topics, including the images and confusion of the dreamworld [that] linger in our waking hours and create deep emotion and consciousness from her art (New York Times Book Review).

"My absolute favorite book of recent memory: an exquisite and delightful and peculiarly illustrated memoir about...well, the search for the meaning of life. I will be giving this book to everyone I love."
