Maira Kalman & The Elements of Style




I have to let you all in on Maira Kalman. She is a very talented artist who illustrates children's books and has also illustrated a book I am very keen to get my hands on called The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jnr & E.B. White available via mail order from Barnes & Noble and yes they do ship to Australia. I have posted some pictures above of the illustrations Maira has done for the book. Absolutely Beautiful!!

One of my favorite books. I could cut out every page, add a frame and never by anymore art!

I agree Pinkmohair. I just went onto the Barnes & Noble site to look at the book and they have a video link with Maira talking about the book and her illustrations. It was really great. Check it out.
