About this item

Take a deeper look at the unique, hidden beauty of winter with the world's foremost snowflake expert and photographer.

The Snowflake: Winter's Frozen Artistry is filled with a blizzard of breathtaking, close-up, highly detailed photographs of snow crystals. The book is written in a lighthearted, popular-science tone and focuses on what snowflakes are, how they form in clouds, why they have sixfold symmetry, why they have facets and branches, and the many different types of snowflakes.

A decade's worth of photography from northern Ontario, Vermont, Alaska, Michigan, northern Sweden, and Japan, including more beautiful crystals, advanced photographic techniques, high-resolution images, numerous examples of crystal types, and a wide variety of illumination methods make for a visually stunning work of frozen art.

Authors Kenneth N. Libbrecht and Rachel Wing provide fascinating material on snowflake photography, winter clouds and snowflakes, ice halos, skiing, snowballs, artificial snow, avalanches, and frost formations. No one who has ever caught snowflakes on their tongue or simply marveled at a winter wonderland will want to miss it!
