This illustrated reference compiles more than 2000 collective nouns and brings them to life in stunningly colourful, graphic artwork from the design dynamos at Woop Studios. Chock-full of treasures of the English language, the diversity of terms collected here covers topics from plants and animals (a parade of elephants, a stand of trees) to people and things (a pomposity of professors, an exultation of fireworks) and range from the familiar (a pride of lions) to the downright obscure (an ooze of amoebas). Pronunciations, definitions, etymologies and historical anecdotes throughout make the book as entertaining to read as it is beautiful to look at.
