Description - Sky by Luca Mercalli
The sky is a never-ending source of inspiration for artists, poets, and anyone who has found peace in contemplating clouds or a colourful sunset. Whether viewed from below or from above - with the help of satellite images - the pictures in this new addition to White Star's popular "Cubebooks" series convey the many faces of the sky. Colourful images capture the violent force of tempestuous storms as well as the glorious sunrises, sunsets, and northern lights that are reflections of nature's gentler side. Readers view the sky in horizons that frame both the most beautiful natural parks and landscapes in the world and the skylines of the world's most sophisticated cities. Spectacular views of flocks of migratory birds pose a fascinating contrast to images of people "flying" in extreme sports such as paragliding, sky-diving or through the impressive manoeuvres of acrobatic air squads. Throughout the book, insightful captions provide fascinating facts about meteorological phenomena and other heavenly titbits. With its stunning full-page spreads, the Cubebook format is ideal for showcasing sweeping cloud formations, dramatic weather patterns, and vast expanses of deep, pure blue sky.
Accessible and delightfully tactile. "The Sky Cubebook" will appeal to readers of all ages.
