Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Part history, part physics lesson, part sumptuous photo gallery, and overall field guide to the beauty so often lost afloat and under boot."
The New York Times, in their review of Snowflake: Winter's Secret Beauty

The Daily Yomiuri (Tokyo), Dec. 9, 2006

“It’s a fun little book that shows nature’s art in great detail.”

Chicago Sun Times, Dec. 6, 2006

“Libbrecht is one of the foremost experts on snow. His recently published Field Guide to Snowflakes (Voyageur Press) is his fourth book on the subject, and his work is included in a new exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago.”

NJ Family Life, January 2007

“This captivating introduction to the science behind snowflakes is highlighted by the author’s own snowflake microphotographs.”

The International Journal of Meteorology, March 2007

“This book really tells the reader almost all he could possibly want to know about the humble snowflake, and certainly made your reviewer ache for an ‘old-fashioned winter’ so that he could use this valuable book in the field.”

Hamptons.com, Nov. 20, 2007

“A handy, pocket-sized book that offers tips for intrepid snowflake hunters, including what type of snowflakes to expect during certain weather conditions, and opportune ways

for capturing them. You can find and buy the book from the publisher or at any major bookstore.”
