Natalie Loves: Bed, a limited-edition booklet by Maira Kalman released on the first morning of Summer. @mairakalman

“What is better than bed?
There is no place I love more.
The precise, ecstatic moment
of getting into bed.
The covers. The pillows.
The womb. The cocoon.
Beautiful blissful bed.”

—Maira Kalman

Purchase a signed and numbered edition of Bed here. Maira is donating a portion of all proceeds in support of the national network of abortion funds, which distributes funding to local organizations working to ensure the physical and emotional well-being of women across the land.
