On Our Shelves Now
For almost a half century, American photographer W. A. Bentley captured on film thousands of snowflakes in his Jericho, Vermont, workshop. Intended as research and teaching aids for scientists and art instructors, 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.
This inexhaustible source of design inspiration for artists, designers, and craftspeople is based on a selection of Bentley's graceful patterns. Ideal for use in textile and wallpaper design, as well as in a host of creative projects, these 576 delicate images will delight anyone intrigued by the intricacy and beauty of design in the natural world.
