My latest bookstore find! Picked up this beautifully illustrated version of Strunk & White’s The Elements of Style, printed in 2005. It features an introduction by E. B. White himself (written in 1979 for the manual’s third edition), a foreword by Roger Angell (White’s stepson), and illustrations by Maira Kalman throughout. Found at The Paperback Rack in Tallahassee, Florida.
