The “Can Do” Spirit, Illustrated with Graceful Purposefulness

Sometimes we have to think differently about how information is presented to us. Take the example of Maira Kalman. She’s an illustrator, author and designer and has written and illustrated 14 children’s books as well as 7 adult books.

This piece on American inventiveness was published as part of an illustrated, 12-part blog in the New York Times. It has been since published as a book.
