Weather : Pop-up Book Hardback

Illustrated by Michael Prestel

Hardback

Description

In her hugely successful books Creatures of the Deep and What's in the Egg, as well as her enormously popular series of greeting cards for the Museum of Modern Art, Maike Biederstaedt has established herself as one of the preeminent paper artists working today.

Now Biederstaedt takes book engineering to new heights as she immerses readers in five electrifying weather scenarios.

As each spread unfolds, a meticulously designed landscape emerges--a freighter balances like a nutshell between high waves in the sea; a tornado takes terrifying aim at a truck trying to outrun it; a rain-spewing storm cloud towers like a skyscraper over a farm house.

Nature's delicate beauty emerges in the intricate shapes of a snowflake and in the luminous arc of a rainbow.

Each page features an informative description of its weather event and the book closes with sobering commentary on the effects of climate change.

A wondrous introduction to weather for budding climatologists, this is also an artistic tour de force that collectors will treasure.
