An embarrassment of pandas, a galaxy of starfish, a shiver of sharks...these are all collective nouns used to describe their groups. Woop Studios, acclaimed for their work on the Harry Potter movies, has illustrated these quirky phrases, creating a series of extraordinarily beautiful art that has been collected here for the first time. The colorful introduction to animals and the alphabet is accessible for young children, while the gorgeous, whimsical art and clever wordplay make it perfect for design-savvy parents and inspired gift givers. Longer than the standard picture book, with high design and production values, this is a volume readers will want on their coffee tables in addition to their child’s bookshelf.
Woop is a short for Miraphora Mina, Eduardo Lima, Harriet Logan, and Mark Faulkner who founded Woop Studios Limited in 2010. Mira and Eduardo have spent the last decade working as graphic designers on the Harry Potter movies. Harriet Logan is an award-winning photographer. And entrepeneur Mark Faulkner has always been obsessed with collective nouns, inspiring this project.
