"...that the uncertainty principle is a manifestation of the observer effect."

maira kalman's book "the principles of uncertainty" is a visual treasure. it is deeply satisfying in the way only illustrated books can be, the way illustrated books are satisfying to children, this is the way that 'the principles of uncertainty' is satisfying to me, as it must be to other childlike adults.

it makes you feel a certain wild permission to write a book this instant and start painting the world as it pours through your retinas.
