“Something About the Sky” – Rachel Carson, Nikki McClure

This beautiful book about clouds by Nikki McClure is about the imagery she used to bring to life a long-forgotten television script by Rachel Carson, ‘Something About the Sky’ which aired on March 11, 1956.  Nikki approached Rachel Carson’s estate and they granted permission for her to illustrate and publish the script.  She explains that it’s full of Carson’s thoughts about the sky, and now it has become a book-shaped ‘something’ to inspire cloud gazing and wonder.  The illustrations by Nikki McClure are mesmerising and this article shows how she created them.
