Remarkable revelations of nature's diversity, revealed in hundreds of snowflake images taken by American photographer W .A. Bentley during a 50-year period. Over 850 illustrations of snow crystals, with no two designs exactly alike, will inspire artists, designers, and craftspeople in search


For almost a century, W. A. Bentley caught and photographed thousands of snowflakes in his workshop at Jericho, Vermont, and made available to scientists and art instructors samples of his remarkable work. His painstakingly prepared images were remarkable revelations of nature's diversity in uniformity: no two snowflakes are exactly alike, but all are based on a common hexagon.
In 1931, the American Meteorological Society gathered the best of Bentley's photos and had them published; that work has long been available in a Dover reprint edition. The present volume includes a selection of 72 of the best plates (containing over 850 royalty-free, black-and-white photographs), carefully selected from that larger collection.
An inexhaustible source of design inspiration for artists, designers, and craftspeople, these graceful patterns are ideal for use in textile and wallpaper design, as well as a host of other creative projects. These images will also appeal to anyone intrigued by the intricacy and beauty of design in the natural world.

HASH(0x9f1fbe04) von 5 Sternen "Snowflakes in Photographs" just a dusting compared to "Snow Crystals" 21. Juli 2005
Von The Unplain Jane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"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.

HASH(0x9f1fbe58) von 5 Sternen Know What You Want & Why 23. Dezember 2007
Von A. Karlsson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book about lived up to my expectations -- which wouldn't make it worth it for everybody. In our case, we were doing a unit study on snowflakes and we covered Bentley's biography (from children's picture books for the young ones to more complete adult biographies for the older) and the point of this book for us was simply to see what it was that he did. I explained to my first grader that the large camera he had was also very young in terms of the history of photography and that what he accomplished was marvelous for his time. I also explained that today's equipment is able to do so much more. We turned to Libbrecht'sThe Snowflake-- being from Caltech he's probably a good one to take up the cause and the photos are incredible. My first grader loved them so much that we ended up getting the calendar, Snowflakes 2008 Calendar: Featuring the amazing micro-photography of Kenneth Libbrecht (Calendar). The high school student was more interested in the text, and I loved both.

Since I was familiar with Bentley's photos I knew I was buying this one for historical interest to go along with the biographies and not for anything more -- therefore, I didn't experience any disappointment for it perhaps not being as good as other books mentioned.

HASH(0x9f21b150) von 5 Sternen A collection of snowflake photographs 25. August 2005
Von A reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is basically a 72 page book with b/w photos of snowflakes. With 12 crystals on each page it has quite a varied collection of snowflakes.It is not a coffee table book - but a great reference book.

HASH(0x9f21b678) von 5 Sternen Candy-colored, Snowflake Biome 9. Mai 2008
Von Scott M. Kruse - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Bentley photographed the ephemeral and hidden: snowflakes. He did this on his own with limited education and equipment. His glass plates remind us of the awe, beauty and wonder of frozen water. The book reveals Bentley's efforts on his Vermont farm over his lifetime. His dedication and creativity help us grasp the complexity, simplicity and three-dimensional images of snow. Snow is the most unstable substance on earth - always changing, even while it is forming in the atmosphere, falling through the atmosphere, depositing on a ground surface (water, soil, fence, glass, trees), sublimating (going directly from a solid to a vapor), hoar frost depositing out of a saturated clear atmosphere at night to produce a fairly land in at sunrise, going through continuous metamorphism (melt-freeze, temperature gradient, equitemperature gradient) and finally melting to return to the liquid form of the hydrologic cycle.

Bentley's photographs enable us all to grasp snow from nursery to graduate school - the images all make sense - physically and mentally. Many images have been transformed into ornaments, framed photographs and other high end works of art.

I bought this book hoping the kids (8&5) would be intrigued by all the patterns of the snowflakes. They weren't, but the adults loved it!

The photography and the story of the how these snowflakes were captured on film is very interesting.
