In early 2012, Time magazine published photos of artist Rachel Hulin’s son as he flew around his house in an astonishing and charming fashion.
It was so charming, in fact, that the photos were everywhere in a matter of days.
According to Time, Rachel didn’t stop with the first set of photos — more were added to the collection and the book Flying Henry was born “about a baby who is rather pleased when he realizes he can fly,” Hulin said.
“He flutters about his home at first, but soon thirsts for adventure and flies the coop.”
The book tells the story of Henry, who appreciates his rare gift and soars through his home, into nature, and unfamiliar places, testing the limits of his new skill by examining the world around him” from above. He ultimately realizes, however, that there’s a secret to fully enjoying his gift.
As we said last year, the photos are whimsical, ethereal and totally magical. Take a look at a few images from the book, which is in stores now:
