If you are wondering whether you need this, yes, you do. A Compendium of Collective Nouns (Chronicle, $35) is an utterly delightful and visually joyful dictionary that will have you contemplating a murder of crows, an exultation of fireworks, and, woefully, an embarrassment of pandas. The wonders of the English language will never cease, and with the brightly illustrated definitions of some of language’s finest exploits, the designers at London’s Woop Studios have brought us a guide to enjoying its splendor properly. An excellent teaching tool or just a great piece for your home, The Compendium will be a book you and your pride—whether it be friend, familiar, or feline—can treasure.
