Honestly, I don't think so. The aim of the python documentation is to
document the python language and the standard library. Python already
distributes a simple GUI mechanism: Tkinter.

If you want more, you need to look outside the standard library, and
so also for external documentation. There are tons of very well
written tutorials about GUI designing: choose what's the library you
want to use (f.e. in the linux world, the mail GUI libraries are:
GTK+, QT and WX), and once you define that, go for the GUI designer
ad-hoc for it.
