3.0 out of 5 stars "Snowflakes in Photographs" just a dusting compared to "Snow Crystals", July 21, 2005
This review is from: Snowflakes in Photographs (Dover Pictorial Archive) (Paperback)
"Snowflakes in Photographs" is a beautiful book with some history on Bentley and his photography; featuring stunning black and white photographs of snowflakes. Ironically however, the book "Snow Crystals" (also published by Dover) contains a great deal more text and more than twice the number of photographs than this book "Snowflakes in Photographs". I bought the two books at the same time thinking that other one focused more on Bentley and this one focused more on the pictures but it was a mistake. This is a case of "you get what you pay for" and the only reason to buy this one is that it is a bit cheaper than the other. On it's own, this book is still a smaller but nice collection of photographs without much 'text' support.

Thanks for explaining that. I purchased this book thinking it would be a replacement for the copy of Snow Crystals I bought more than 30 years ago. Then I noticed it was missing text and that it had 80 pages instead of 226. But I'm glad to see that Snow Crystals is still available right here on Amazon.com.
