The Pursuit of Everything: Maira Kalman's Books for Children

From the exhibition The Pursuit of Everything: Maira Kalman's Books for Children, The High Museum of Art, June 22 - September 15, 2019 and The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, October 13, 2019 - January 19, 2020. 40 pages, full color.

Includes essay "Could You Kindly Snap It Up with the Meaning of Life?" by Guest Curator, Jane Bayard Curley. "It is such a wonderful thing to meet a gifted illustrator or a talented writer. Kalman happens to be both. When I was introduced to her, it was no surprise to find she was just like her work: funny, smart, and an undisputed champion for the universal appeal of the picture book. Are they for children? Yes. Adults? You better believe it. Bring on the books with pictures. Her highly personal and somewhat eccentric worldview appeals to anyone who wants to be verbally and visually amused and challenged."
