A rare (and gorgeously produced) and wise book,
This review is from: The Principles of Uncertainty (Hardcover)
Maira Kalman's book is a one-off, unlike anything I have come across and studded throughout without her distinctive and beautiful illustrations and a narrative that is both mad and sane in equal measure (just as we all are!).
The production is stunning and everything about this book makes it a joy to behold and lose yourself in.
Highly recommended for anyone who takes real pleasure in a book's physicality but also enjoys offbeat, quirky but genuinely wise women. Maira Kalman is all of these things

This is Canongate Books reviewing their own output - see the profile giving uncritical glowing reviews to all 33 books - some before release - how can anyone be so lucky as to pick up a 5 star book every single time?

Leo McMarley has reviewed five books - and this isn't a Canongate book. Can you elucidate?
