A Stylishly Illustrated ‘Elements of Style’
Last month my wife and I checked out an exhibit at the First Gallery in Nashville that featured the illustrations Maira Kalman did for a new edition of Strunk and White’s “Elements of Style.”
That’s not exactly a book that one would consider working with as an illustrator, is it? Kalman’s illustrations are often funny and always thought provoking in the, “What does she mean by that?” way. It’s a blast making connections between her art and the text.
We liked it so much that we bought a copy for our younger son’s birthday. Treat yourself or someone special to a copy and if the exhibit of her illustrations comes to a gallery or museum near you, be sure to see it.
