This book is to read and read and read and give and give and give. Tried reading the e book version, but it's not the same.
Buy the real thing.
Other thoughts: The quality of the actual book is excellent. The binding is of very high quality and has the nice added touch of being red fabric, lending itself to feeling like an old library book rather than a modern print. This went along perfectly with the books point of recalling memories and old objects. Also, each page has just the right amount of text and pictures on it--one does not overshadow the other. It is not crowded which is important given the artist's funky text type. This is by far my favorite one of her books and I love to curl up with it on a rainy day and reminisce about my won childhood memories!
A friend gave me a copy for Christmas and I bought my Amazon copy for my best friend's 97th birthday. And SHE loved the book. Maira Kalman is marvelous, funny, witty, clever, perfection. Her art is fresh and utterly appealing. One of my favorite books in my entire collection. A person cannot go wrong in purchasing "My Favorite Things."
