Little Book of Snowflakesby Kenneth Libbrecht
Synopses & Reviews
"Snowflakes, like people, are all different and beautiful, but they can be a nuisance when they lose their identity in a mob." The Little Book of Snowflakes presents these evanescent formations in their breathtaking individuality, pinpointing their spectacular symmetries in new, super-detailed photographs. A peek into winter's microscopic wonderland.
Book News Annotation:
A charming small book (5.5x5.5") featuring images made by the author with a photo-microscope--of snowflakes in all their glory and variety of shape. Well-chosen literary quotes accompany the images.

Following the success of The Snowflake: Winter's Secret Beauty, this companion gift book features new, super-detailed photographs of snowflakes, detailed captions containing the science behind their beauty, and literary quotes relating to snow and nature.
