The Principles of Uncertainty is a simply delightful book. The title sounds boring and the cover isn't that appealing but once you dive into the book you realise it is something very special indeed.
It is a beautifully illustrated book based on a year in the life of the author. Maira Kalman has written many children's books and I'm sure they are very good too. This is a book for grown-ups though.
Not in the sense that it contains any sex or naughty words or such – just that the language is aimed at adults.
I hope the pages I have put into this post will give you a little taste of the book. It is hard to do it justice.
I enjoyed it so much that once I finished it, I went back to the beginning and started all over again.
