Vampires with Good Grammar

        Is for Vampire. Again I feel I'm taking liberties. But I'll do whatever it takes to get my letter & word into this blog for the A to Z challenge. I'm shameless.

I've had this book for a long time. I rediscovered it on the book shelf not too long ago. The name alone gets you interested. The Transitive Vampire. The reviews alone will get you chuckling. It's all about punctuation and grammar. But don't let that fool you. It's a fun read along with being a wealth of information.

Published over 20 years ago it's still a great resource. The imagery on the sides of the text are thoughtful & whimsical as well. I'm a sucker for anything vintage.

Words and how they are put together are important if you are involved in calligraphy, poetry, artfully representing the written word in any way. I still feel  I have a lot to learn about language. To find an entertaining way to become better educated is a bonus.

  1. That looks like a great book and would be especially useful in my pursuit of a bachelor's degree in English!
