The Elements of Style

This is one of my birthday presents I picked up with my birthday money: the illustrated version of The Elements of Style by Strunk & White. I am a bit astonished by this myself, but I don't think I have actually read The Elements of Style before. If nothing else, this confirms to me that I am a grammar nerd, because I am thoroughly enjoying it.  I love grammar.  I LOVE GRAMMAR!  It's a funny, funny thing.

But I also love the illustrations by Maira Kalman.  They are lovely, lovely.  Many reviews of this book suggests a having work copy, and then this version--more for play I guess?  We'll see.  I like the idea of using something beautiful and useful at the same time.
