5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful snow....life at its most fragile and ephemerial...
Nature's finest performance art abounds in these delicate photos of one-of-a-kind disappearing acts. Each one a treasure for contemplation; some so beautiful as to defy description (page 188 for instance). It is such a relief to NOT be bombarded with glitz and hard-sell so prevalent in everything our eyes come in contact with these days. Thank you to Mr. Libbrecht for...

1.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't what I wanted
Although the pictures are very impressive and neat, I was hoping for just beautiful pics of white snowflakes. These are like "trippy" flakes with rainbow colors. Also the front cover is slightly damaged and the spine is split. Oh and lastly, pay attention to the size! It's 512pges packed into a 6x6 inch book. Not your typical coffee table book!

This review is from: Snowflakes (Hardcover)
Nature's finest performance art abounds in these delicate photos of one-of-a-kind disappearing acts. Each one a treasure for contemplation; some so beautiful as to defy description (page 188 for instance). It is such a relief to NOT be bombarded with glitz and hard-sell so prevalent in everything our eyes come in contact with these days. Thank you to Mr. Libbrecht for his contribution to beauty for the libraries of time. As an additional exploration and compliment to this work, you should try any book by Masaru Emoto on snowflakes ("The Hidden Messages of Water" is fascinating); and check out Libbrecht's field guide to snowflakes as well. To see them momentarily appear on your mitten in winter, and then revisit their splendor captured in print is a gift. You don't need a TV or VCR or an expensive wide-screen--all you need is the book, a chair, some light, and a good cup of coffee--be with yourself for a few minutes and have a conversation with miracles.

4.0 out of 5 stars beauty of snowcrystals, March 7, 2010

This review is from: Snowflakes (Hardcover)
A neat book of actual pictures taken of snowcrystals. An even better one by the same artist is "The Art of the Snowflake", which is a larger book and has more written content.

This book is a book of photos of snowflakes... for those who like the beauty of snowflakes... but there is no information in it about snowflakes or how they form, etc.

This review is from: Snowflakes (Hardcover)
i saw an interview with the author/photographer on the CBS Sunday morning program a few weeks ago. I wondered how he could take the minute and almost instant melt of a snowlfake to photograph it. the pictures are truly amazing. Each one has its own distinct characteristic. Each intricate flake is just a interesting as the next one featured. Good coffee table book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Book! Shows Kids Real Details!, April 19, 2014

This review is from: Snowflakes (Hardcover)
This book is beautiful study of actual snowflakes. Each page is stand alone art! I like it as a teacher because it can show students the close up details of snowflakes and how they are so different but have some similarities. Highly recommend this work of art!

Here in the northeast we had enough snow this year to appreciate the " workings" of a snowflake. Lovely illustrations and information provided by the author.

I have this book in the guest bathroom, something to entertain when you do what you have to do! Everyone loves it, many great comments. A small, thick book to place anywhere actually, it is so convenient. A nice bedside book in a guest room as well. Beautiful photography. Highly recommend!

This book I got for my mom for a 'snowflake' themed gift. She loves it. The photos are outstanding and the verses throughout very appropriate and lovely. The book is super heavy and perfect on her coffee table, where it now lives.

4.0 out of 5 stars very pretty coffee table book, January 20, 2014

This review is from: Snowflakes (Hardcover)
I bought it for my wife for Christmas because snowflakes fascinate her. The binding was a bit unconventional, and actually tore slightly on the first day. We fixed it with some clear packing tape -- it wasn't worth the hassle to return it.
