Maira Kalman’s exuberant illustrations and humorous commentary bring design history to life in this celebration of 31 objects from the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. "A. Ah-ha! There you Are" begins Kalman’s joyfully illustrated romp through the treasures of the museum’s design collection. With her signature wit and warm humor, Kalman’s alphabet book introduces children and adults to the myriad ways design touches our lives. Objects ranging from a 13th-century silk thinking cap to 1889 tin slippers with bows to Gerrit Rietveld’s Zig-Zag chair are brought to colorful life. Kalman’s hand-lettered text is whimsical and universal in turns, drawing lessons as easily from a worn old boot as a masterpiece of midcentury modernism.
