A cute giftbook packed with glorious color microphotography of real snow crystals by Dr. Snow—Caltech physicist Kenneth Libbrecht. His photos of snowflakes have appeared in National Geographic, the New York Times, and on Martha Stewart’s TV show, as well as numerous other places. This thick “cube” book is packed with a blizzard’s worth of amazing images as well as literary quotes on the beauty of snow.


Book News
The micro-photography of Libbrecht (physics, California Institute of Technology) seems to confirm the cliché that no two snowflakes are alike. Interspersed with the lovely images are quotes from scientists, naturalists, and poets. However, this unique volume does not contain methodological notes or recommended reading for those curious about how he took these photos.
