"The Elements of Style" by Strunk and White, with Illustrations by Maira Kalman
Every English writer knows Strunk and White's "The Elements of Style." While our kids tell us that worrying about correct grammar prissy, this is still our go-to guide to making a phrase clearer or enlivening our prose with the active voice. This time-tested style manual to the principals of plain English is enlivened by Maira Kalman’s wonderful illustrations that give the revered work a jolt of new energy.
