Early in 2010, Michael Pollan released “Food Rules,” 64 simple rules for eating that answer the question, “What should I eat?” The book was a best seller, and last month, a new, illustrated edition of “Food Rules” was released with a new introduction and 19 new food rules.


Artist Maira Kalman did the colorful, joyful illustrations for the new edition, and she talks about the process in this video.



I absolutely love those illustrations. Do you?
