Maira Kalman on the food revolution
Maira Kalman, the artist famous (to me) for her wonderful illustrations for Strunk and White’s Elements of Style and the “Newyorkistan” New Yorker cover is now doing a monthly op-ed column of photographs and commentary – called “And the Pursuit of Happiness” – for the New York Times blog site. Her November piece, “Back to the Land,” is about the food revolution and its importance for American democracy. It’s a gift to everyone interested in food politics or anything else about food.
