Last week I wrote here about Maira Kalman and Daniel Handler’s Girls Standing on Lawns, to be published by the Museum of Modern Art in early May.

Pictured above are two paintings from the book.

Ah. Kalman.

  1. OK – first of all, this is amazing, thanks for posting and bringing your Kirkus review to our attention. Secondly – the review is BRILLIANT! I was blown away. You should be very, very proud of your work. I think you are a kind and modest person, but you should be proud. Yes, I did read it at midnight, but still – I’m just saying.
