This is another book we have on display during the winter season–The Snowflake, Winter’s Secret Beauty, text by Kenneth Libbrecht, photography by Patricia Rasmussen. It’s an incredibly comprehensive book on snowflakes and the pictures are spectacular! Like most of my art books, I primarily bought this for the images, but it certainly qualifies as a reference book as well. It’s got everything you could possibly want to know about how they’re formed, how they’re photographed, how they’re classified, etc.
I love these pages that are full of snowflake photographs! Each one is so unique! Every year we look through this book and marvel at these tiny miracles of creation.
“The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” (Psalm 19:1)
