The Elements: a book review


The Elements by Theodore Gray

Some time ago, I purchased the photobook The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe by Theodore Gray of periodictable.com. A paperback edition has now also become available. Gray’s book is informative, brilliantly designed, and beautifully illustrated, displaying a real passion for the elements. Here are two sample spreads (click to zoom):

Everyone interested in science should probably have this one on the coffee table. Owners of the book can find some online resources here.
