he had a dog named fido

Maira Kalman has a new post up about falling in love with Abraham Lincoln.  
It's delightful. check it out at the nytimes.

that's a great illustration.

I read through that entire post and especially loved her contemplation of what she might do were Lincoln actually alive and "available" today. Suprisingly, it all sounded pretty reasonable.

I loved how she wrote about him teaching himself everything and his step mother loving him.
that he was 7 feet tall, with hat, and said so much with 272 words.
and I especially loved the end where she embroidered his words onto fabric.
(I'm a little bit in love with Lincoln too!)
