Stylized by Mark Garvey

Alice Pope, former editor of Children’s Writers & Illustrators Market, has a children’s market blog for the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI).

Today she highlighted an interesting book by Mark Garvey, Stylized: A Slightly Obsessive History of Strunk & White’s The Elements of Style. Garvey’s book celebrates Strunk & White’s classic tome The Elements of Style—now 50 years old—and gives insight into the lives of these authors.

As a former technical writer, I have a copy of Elements on my bookshelf that has been referenced innumerable times over the years. I look forward to checking out Garvey’s Stylized. I hope you’ll consider making some time for it too.

In the meantime, check out Alice Pope’s blog for more details on Garvey’s book.
