William Strunk , E. B. White, Maira Kalman
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.
