About this book

Snowflakes may be an everyday subject, but you've never seen them like this! This is an extraordinary look at a seemingly ordinary subject. The mystery of snowflakes is how they develop into such intricate forms. From the simple act of water condensing into ice, these amazing crystal structures appear – complex, symmetric and in endlessly varying designs. Kenneth Libbrecht describes the creation of the snow crystal, and their fleeting beauty and complexity are captured in Patricia Rasmussen's amazing micro-photography.
