Ah-Ha to Zig-Zag is Maira Kalman's charming and intelligent children’s-book counterpart of her magnificent book, My Favorite Things . Both books were published on the occasion of an exhibition Kalman curated at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
In this beautiful Alphabet book, Kalman selects thirty-one objects from the Cooper Hewitt's collection and strings them together into this A to Z of design history, with her characteristic quirk, wit and warmth.
'Life is not a straight line. Life is a Zig Zag. A little forth. A little back as you Zoom along.'
This book is a delight from beginning to end and highly recommended as a stylish present for children.
