WPF 4 - Unleashed

In my opinion one of the best books about WPF - now updated to version 4.0. It's printed fully in color, so all code samples have syntax highlighting. It includes all the good explanations and samples of version 3 including new chapters about multitouch, XAML 2009, VSM, improved text rendering, windows 7 shell integration and more.

Application = Code + Markup

"Get the definitive guide to the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), the new client programming interface for the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 and Windows Vista. Award-winning author Charles Petzold teaches you how to combine C# code and the Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) to develop applications for the WPF.". I cannot unterstand how anyone can write a book about a UI technology without a single illustration. If you prefer gray text to colorful images, it might be the book for you.
