Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Back by popular demand. Snowflakes may be an everyday, common subject, but you've never seen them like this! A collection of amazing photography of snow crystals using a unique system designed to take super-detailed micro images of these miniature ice masterpieces, 'The Snowflake' is an extraordinary look at a seemingly ordinary object. The general public is interested in popular science subjects, weather, and amazing photography. 'The Snowflake' has elements of all these, and with its appealing combination of informative text and fascinating photography, there is no other book like it on the market. Author Kenneth Libbrecht, an executive officer of physics at CalTech and the pre-eminent snow-crystal researcher, discusses the physics and mythology of snow and how snow crystals are made. Photographer Patricia Rasmussen presents remarkable colour micro-photography as invented by farmer Wilson Bentley.

Review:
'You'll never look at the white stuff under your skis the same way after getting this close to the powder and the glory of the snowflake' 'dazzling, crystalline, breathtaking ... rich and readable' --L A Times

'dazzling, crystalline, breathtaking ... rich and readable' --Star Tribune

'An unexpected treasure ... Patricia Rasmussen's amazing photographs alone would be worth the asking price but its the text that truly make this book an enjoyable read' --Daily Oakland Press
