Hallelujah for Maira Kalman




If you’ve been here a while you may remember my previous posts (hairy, backsides) about Maira Kalman and her artblog for the New York Times, which was published as a book, The Principles of Uncertainty, which I highly recommend.

After a two-year break, she returns to the Times in a delightful posting where she sings Hallelujah, capturing the exuberant mood of the country awaiting its new President in mid-January during a visit to D.C. for the Inauguration.

Here are some excerpts, and you can view the entire series in their full size here.
