The only style manual to ever appear on a bestseller list now refreshed by one of our most beloved illustrators

Every English writer knows Strunk and White's The Elements of Style. The book’s mantra, make every word tell, is still on point. This much-loved classic, now in its fourth edition, will forever be the go-to guide when in need of a hint to make a turn of phrase clearer or a reminder on how to enliven prose with the active voice. The only style manual to ever appear on bestseller lists has explained to millions of readers the basic principals of plain English, and Maira Kalman’s fifty-seven exquisite illustrations give the revered work a jolt of new energy, making the learning experience more colorful and clear.

MAIRA KALMAN is an illustrator, author, and designer.

  • Style, indeed!

    This is a wonderful rendition of a great book. The illustrations are so charming and it makes for a great gift. A friend gave it to me when I went back to school and now I want copies for everyone I know - great teacher gifts too.
