    eBook Maira Kalman Í My Favorite Things PDF/EPUB ´ My Favorite PDF or Í favorite mobile, things kindle, My Favorite pdf, My Favorite Things MOBIThe Cooper Hewitt Museum in NYC once asked Maira Kalman to do an exhibit based their collection; My Favorite Things is the book based on that exhibit The first part is a brief autobiography of Kalman followed by illustrations of her favorite items from the Cooper Hewitt followed by illustrations of Kalman's other favorite things all accompanied by brief bits of text and excerpts from other books This is like a picture book for adults; it's a bit hard to review because it's so short But the illustrations are beautiful and the text is lovely like poetry Kalman always has a remarkable ability to fit a lot of meaning into a small space
