Product description

The Cloud Appreciation Society's Manifesto states: 'We believe that clouds are for dreamers and their contemplation benefits the soul. Indeed, all who consider the shapes they see within them will save on psychoanalysis bills.' This is a glorious collection of clouds that look like things, including dragons, skateboarders, pasta, witches and poodles. It is a proud celebration of the carefree, aimless and endlessly life-affirming pastime of cloudspotting.

'A lovely book, the sort that everybody should have in the car or on the kitchen windowsill' -- Daily Telegraph on THE CLOUDSPOTTER'S GUIDE '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.' -- Daily Mail on THE CLOUDSPOTTER'S GUIDE
