around the city

The other day I found out about an older book titled Ooh-la-la (Max in Love) by Maira Kalman. I highly recommend a peek even if just for the artwork or the fact that it's based in the city of Paris. It has a very whimsical feel and keeps with the style of her other books. Maira's latest blog is And the Pursuit of Happiness. It's a treat!
