My mom gave me a copy of the illustrated Elements of Style by Strunk and White. She knows I love language and words - their use and order and my delight in the perfect sentence. So it was an ideal gift! The illustrations, rendered by Maria Kalman, are beautiful!
You can see Maria's work in The New Yorker, New York Times Magazine, several books, and more.
Altogether, Maria is a talented artist who continually attempts challenging and unique projects; a confidence I completely admire {and, admittedly, one I covet}.
Here are some of the illustrations she did for New York Times Magazine covering the couture shows in Paris in 2000.
