There's a german book on GUI Programming with Python, which covers Tkinter,
wxPython, PyQT and PyGTK+ 2... I actually liked the read, the author creates
a lightweight contact management program in each of the four, and discusses
step by step how the functionality is implemented, showing the differences
between the event handling code in each of the four, etc.
You might wonder how he achieves to go through all four different programming
environments in a single book, but I think he manages quite well to keep it
simple and short, and showing relevant links to the available documentation
where it is needed as a starting-point for further projects.
Anyway, if anybody's interested:
Name: Python und GUI-Toolkits
Author: Michael Lauer
First published in 2002 (I have the first edition, IIRC there's a second
edition out already)
I can only recommend to have a look at this book if you speak german,learn
easily from example, and would like to get insight knowledge on
GUI-Programming with Python...
