Publishers Description
Every English-language writer knows Strunk and White's famous little writing manual, The Elements of Style. Many people between the ages of seventeen and seventy can recite the book's mantra--make every word tell--and still refer to their tattered grade school copy when in need of a hint on how to make a turn of phrase clearer, or a reminder on how to enliven prose with the active voice. Considering that millions of copies have been sold to millions of devotees, you might not think to ask what could enhance this (almost) perfect classic. In fact, the addition of illustrations allows readers to experience the book's contents in a completely new way, making the whole learning experience more colorful and clear, as well as adding a whimsical element that compliments the subtly humorous tone of the prose. The Elements of Style Illustrated will come to be known as the definitive, must-have edition.

Maira Kalman is the offbeat and wildly talented illustrator of twelve children's books, numerous covers for The New Yorker magazine, fabrics for the fashion designers Isaac Mizrahi and Kate Spade, watches and accessories for the Museum of Modern Art, and a mural at the elegant Wavehill estate in Riverdale, among other projects. Her sophisticated and witty images that are yet bright and fanciful have won her a devoted following, especially among young urbanites. Maira Kalman is acknowledged by the E. B. White estate as the single artist trusted to illustrate the revered The Elements of Style.

The Elements of Style Illustrated brings a fresh immediacy to the well-loved, much-valued, and still on-point work that has become an institution. While giving the classic work a jolt of new energy to appeal to contemporary readers, Kalman's illustrations are hemselves timeless, designed to sit alongside the ever-enduring manual for another fifty years and more.

William Strunk and E. B. White's classic writing manual, The Elements of Style, has been enriched to include the vibrant, witty, and instantly recognizable images of Maira Kalman in a beautiful illustrated edition

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very important resource for writers  Nov 21, 2008
I wish I could remember who originally recommended the original Strunk & White Elements of Style to me. If I could remember, I would find them and hug them unabashedly.

If you're writing ANYTHING and care AT ALL about how it turns out then do yourself a favor and pick this one up. The organization is very strange (there isn't any to speak of) and the writing style is very direct. The result is a no-nonsense book that teaches you to cut the crap out of your writing.

There are many, many valuable lessons contained in Strunk's short and useful guide but the best ones, for me, are the ones regarding comma usage and his favorite command, "Omit needless words." During everything I've ever written since reading this book I've heard a disembodied voice telling me to remove words. I've noticed while editing other people's work that the piece can be improved dramatically by deleting all the words that say nothing.

It's a quick read but a necessary one for anyone doing any kind of writing.
Fun Addition to a Classic  Sep 21, 2008
The Maira Kalman illustrations are a delightful addition to the fine writing advice of William Strunk and E.B. White. Will the playful paintings aid in your pursuit of writing greatness obtained from reading these pages? YES!

Strunk and White teach us how to write well and thoughtfully. Kalman's wonderful illustrations demonstrate that writing without an attitude of joy is simply dull.
Great Buy   Jul 29, 2008
I'm usually concerned about purchasing items on line, especially books. I can honestly say that this experience was worth it. I would recommend this seller to anyone interested in purchasing good quality books at extremely reasonable prices.

Buy with confidence, I did!
Recommendation from my sister  Jul 5, 2008
Makes a great gift - who ever would have thought to illustrate a grammar book.
Illustrations are superfluous  May 29, 2008
I could've done without the illustrations in this edition of the Elements of Style. Also, they've put the page numbers on the inside margins of the pages. So if you look up a reference in the index, you then have to open the book wide to find the page number, which should be placed on the outer margin where it's easy to spot as you flip through.

All I wanted was the Elements of Style, which is a great book. I'll buy the normal edition. This one is irritating.
