FORECAST: A DIARY OF THE LOST SEASONS
by Joe Shute
Published by Bloomsbury Publishing Plc. 1st. 2021
Nearly fine condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper. The author has spent years unpicking Britain's love affair with the weather, poring over the centuries of folklore, customs and rituals our seasons have inspired. In recent years, the author has noticed the British seasons are changing far faster and more profoundly than we realise. Daffodils in December, Frogspawn in November, Swallows that no longer fly home, floods, wildfires and winters without snow. Here the author travels all over Britain tracing the history of the seasons, and discovering the extent to which we are now growing disconnected from them... Navy blue cloth boards, gilt title to spine. B/w chapter headers.
A nice copy.
