Color Tibor a Provocateur

Tibor Kalman was a major early inspiration, so it was a gift to be able to interview him for Wired. Some years later, in his New York kitchen, and at a time when he was deathly ill, it sadly turned out, he was patient with me as I rehearsed my vague notions about launching “an American Granta,” and other half-baked schemes. He loved half-baked schemes. One of them might one day lead to something good, as his often did.
