Nature's finest performance art abounds in these delicate photos of one-of-a-kind disappearing acts. Each one a treasure for contemplation; some so beautiful as to defy description (page 188 for instance). It is such a relief to NOT be bombarded with glitz and hard-sell so prevalent in everything our eyes come in contact with these days. Thank you to Mr. Libbrecht for his contribution to beauty for the libraries of time. As an additional exploration and compliment to this work, you should try any book by Masaru Emoto on snowflakes ("The Hidden Messages of Water" is fascinating); and check out Libbrecht's field guide to snowflakes as well. To see them momentarily appear on your mitten in winter, and then revisit their splendor captured in print is a gift. You don't need a TV or VCR or an expensive wide-screen--all you need is the book, a chair, some light, and a good cup of coffee--be with yourself for a few minutes and have a conversation with miracles.

These photographs of snowflakes are fascinating. To think that no two are alike is mind-boggling! Behind every creation is a Creator.... and this is just His busy-work!! If you look for it, you will find the Star of David pattern in many of them...some obvious, and some hidden. I am grateful to find even a used copy of this book.

This little 6.5" square book is thick and very well bound. The variety of snowflakes is astounding and beautiful. Most of the pages have a full-color picture of one large snowflake and you can see the detail really well. There are some pages of explanations and descriptions also. If you want to see the beauty in form of ice crystals, it is here in this sweet book. I gave my dad a copy last Christmas as he is an engineer and I knew he'd appreciate the intricacy of the crystal structures.

I love this book. I first saw one of these in the student lounge at college, which is perfect because I was a chemistry major and this is right up that alley :) The book in my lounge was bigger than this one (was teh size of an actual textbook), but this one is like a 6x6 size, not that this is particularly bad, just different than I had imagined given what I'd seen already in the lounge. Great micro-photography images, some of them are a little hard on the eyes due to the addition of colored lights but I'd definitely reccommend it!

Absolutely beautiful. I fell like a little kid paging through looking at the pictures. They are amazing.

I have this book in the guest bathroom, something to entertain when you do what you have to do! Everyone loves it, many great comments. A small, thick book to place anywhere actually, it is so convenient. A nice bedside book in a guest room as well. Beautiful photography. Highly recommend!

i saw an interview with the author/photographer on the CBS Sunday morning program a few weeks ago. I wondered how he could take the minute and almost instant melt of a snowlfake to photograph it. the pictures are truly amazing. Each one has its own distinct characteristic. Each intricate flake is just a interesting as the next one featured. Good coffee table book.
