The Art of the Snowflake : A Photographic Gallery Paperback
There is something magical about snow and snowflakes that capture and enchant us, be it a light flurry or a landscape full of deep drifts.
But all too soon they melt and vanish. With this book, you can preserve the perfect geometry and exquisite beauty of nature with 240 different photographs of these individual marvels.
As much a work of art as a testament of science, this book reveals how one of snowflakes most inspired photographers came to such intimate knowledge of his craft and it's fleeting focus.
Beautiful pictures illustrate Libbrecht's story of the microphotography of snow crystals, room the pioneering work of Wilson Bentley in the 1890's right up to the present digital age.
A breathtaking look at works of art that melt in an instant, preserved in glorious color, this is a book to savor season after season.
