Joe Sabia: The technology of storytelling

“iPad storyteller Joe Sabia introduces us to Lothar Meggendorfer, who created a bold technology for storytelling: the pop-up book. Sabia shows how new technology has always helped us tell our own stories, from the walls of caves to his own onstage iPad.”

Maira Kalman ~ Illustrator & Author

Clicking on the image will take you to the book’s description on Maira Kalman’s website. Her other books are here.

 “Maira Kalman was born in Tel Aviv and moved to New York with her family at the age of four. She was raised in bucolic Riverdale, the Bronx. She now lives in Manhattan.”

In the 2007 Ted Talk video embedded below “author and illustrator Maira Kalman talks about her life and work, from her covers for The New Yorker to her books for children and grown-ups. She is as wonderful, as wise and as deliciously off-kilter in person as she is on paper”. (Ted)
