Clouds That Look Like Things

Clouds That Look Like Things

Clouds in the shape of dolphins, elephants, UFOs, even Alfred Hitchcock and Andy Murray… they’re all here in this beautiful and hilarious collection of clouds photographed around the world by members of The Cloud Appreciation Society, selected and wittily captioned by Gavin Pretor-Pinney, winner of the Royal Society Winton Science Writing Prize.

Author of the bestselling The Cloudspotter’s Guide, A Pig With Six Legs and The Cloud Collector’s Handbook, and creator of The Cloud Appreciation Society, Gavin’s mission is to fight blue-sky thinking and encourage us to love and understand clouds. His new book is divided by themes such as ‘Celestial Celebrities’ and ‘Airborne Animals’, and includes an informative section on what clouds are and how they are formed. The perfect gift book for anyone willing to look skywards and discover the beauty and fascination of clouds.

'Read this eye-opening and amusingly written book and you will realise that beautiful as they are clouds are not just put there for decoration, they are truly awesome things.'

Lovely, funny, whimsical book...the sheer joy you will have in seeing a giant's nose created from a mass of water vapour should inspire you to spend a lot more time with your head in the clouds...
