From the Crop Circle Year Book 2008:
The fields of the Wiltshire countryside sit like a gigantic patchwork quilt elegantly draped over the many hills and vales that comprise this ancient landscape. Its many hues and textures criss-crossed with blue satin ribbons of small streams and broader canals are an unforgettable sight to anyone lucky enough to have flown over this beautiful place. During the sultry summer months, the enigmatic circle-makers embroider this velveteen coverlet with enigmatic symbols, sometimes hundreds of feet in diameter. Each year thousands of visitors throng here to visit the temporary temples constructed in this enigmatic annual summer show. Like some great cultural festival, some come to discover, some to contemplate, some just to gawk. They walk, talk, amble and ramble their way along-by long-barrows, round-barrows and stone circles in search of an elusive glimpse of something mysterious. Then slowly, the golden blanket of ripe wheat begins to disappear, to be replaced by the familiar corduroy stripes left behind by herds of great labouring harvesters signalling that another year is over. This book takes you over and through the fields of 2008 to wonder at and ponder the magical crop circles we saw there… This Special Edition combines inspirational aerial imagery with though provoking text to create a unique book full of the ambience mood and atmosphere of this amazing phenomenon.
