Any book or tutorial about the .NET platform in general will be
relevant to IronPython's use of .NET.  In fact, taking existing C# or
VB examples and translating them into Python may be a good way to
leverage your existing Python skills while teaching yourself the .NET
class libraries.

As far as IronPython-specific resources go, you can't beat the
IronPython Cookbook at http://www.ironpython.info/index.php/Main_Page.
 If you want to see some sample Python code that uses the Windows
Forms or Windows Presentation Foundation libraries to produce a GUI,
just go to the Contents at
http://www.ironpython.info/index.php/Contents and scroll down a bit.
