A Compendium of Collective Nouns by Woop Studios

I have always loved collective nouns, and I am so happy that this book exists. Give it to the grammar geek in your life or to the poet who gets words stuck in her head like songs. Or give it to yourself and enjoy more than 2000 collective nouns (some delightfully obscure, like an ooze of amoebas) alongside lush and thrilling illustrations. You’ll be the highlight of every cocktail party.
