Beautiful book of snowflake photography!!! Perfect to go along with Snowflake Bentley and see just how far the photography of snowflakes has come. Even my husband loves to leaf through it Now he and my children notice what kinds of snowflakes are falling from the sky "Look, these are those weird rod shaped snowflakes. . . look Mom, plate snowflakes."
I was fortunate enough to pick up the large, hard-cover version of this book for a mere $5 at a sale, and I consider it to be money well spent. The illustrations are simply beautiful - simple but elegant. It is the ideal book to put on your coffee table so you can flick through it in between other things or over a cup of coffee.
