Kalman Takes on George Washington

Maira Kalman takes on George Washington in the final installment of her excellent And the Pursuit of Happiness blog for the New York Times.

I’m a bit surprised that hardly anybody mentioned Kalman’s blog as one of the best this year.  It was informative, personal, quirky, in short — everything I look for in a blog.  That anyone could add a precocious whimsy to writings on American Democracy and write in a manner that seems perfect for radio and fill each entry with several original sketches is beyond my comprehension.

The blog’s entries will be collected into a book due out in October 2010. [via]
