My Favorite Things by Maira Kalman

This was a treasure of a book filled with over 50 paintings by the author detailing objects that the Cooper Hemy fav thingswitt National Design Museum has in their personal collection. Her illustrations of simple, historical, and quirky objects along with a bit of her memories makes this a book you want to pick up again and again.

We are all surrounded by “stuff” but she looks at objects that are simple and often ordinary.

Her books are full of art, but are a sort of memoir because the photos tell a story.

Girls Standing on Lawns was a little treasure also!

I bought her book Pursuit of Happiness for a friend!
