Geopuns

An unusual presentation of geology visual pun, coined Geopuns, this booklet is of interest to anyone who needs a less serious perspective of the geological sciences. Rocks can be fun particularly when stopping to think about how crazy some of the names sound. Those familiar with the basic terminology in geology will either groan or giggle, and either hate it or love it. The booklet contains 249 black and white concept sketches.
