I've finished the introductory essay that covers scientific aspects of the study of snow crystals, frost, rime, and sleet, but I don't think one can ever be "done" with the pages & pages of amazing photomicrography. The way the book is arranged starts off with simple snow crystal structure; a plate-like hexagon with maybe a tiny pattern inlaid. It slowly progresses through thousands of snowflakes, from simplest to intricate doily-like flakes. All are copyright-free, for artists to use as they wish. I think I'm moving on to a biography of W.A. Bentley next. For me, things like the beauty of nature confirm the existence of & my belief in God/Spirit. I'm very eager to know what Bentley's spiritual views were after a lifetime of the study of millions of miniature works of art.
