The Principles of Uncertainty

“The Principles of Uncertainty”
Penguin, 2009

“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).” Copyright 2004 Phillips & Nelson Media, Inc.

“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.”
– Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
