In this illustrated tour of the sky, founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society, Gavin Pretor-Pinney, will teach you how to distinguish the many different cloud formations, from the common Cumulus to the rare and fleeting Kelvin-Helmholtz cloud. Showing amazing images sent in by members from around the world, he will convince you that clouds are the most dynamic, evocative and poetic aspect of nature, and he will explain why cloudspotting is the perfect antidote to the pressures of modern life. Looking up will never be the same again.
