The Elements has develop into a world sensation, with over 1000000 copies in-print worldwide

The highly-anticipated paperback version of The Elements is eventually available.

An eye-opening, unique selection of attractive, never-before-seen photographic representations of the 118 parts within the periodic table. 

The components are what we, and every thing round us, are made up of. yet what number components has an individual truly visible in natural, uncombined form? The Elements provides this infrequent chance. in response to seven years of analysis and images, the photographs during this booklet make up the main entire, and visually arresting, illustration on hand to the bare eye of each atom within the universe. prepared so as of visual appeal at the periodic desk, each one aspect is represented by way of a variety that features a wonderful, full-page, full-color picture that almost all heavily represents it in its purest shape. for instance, at -183°C, oxygen turns from a drab fuel to a stunning light blue liquid. 

Also incorporated are attention-grabbing proof, figures, and tales of the weather in addition to facts at the houses of every, together with atomic weight, density, melting and boiling aspect, valence, electronegativity, and the 12 months and site within which it was once came upon. numerous extra pictures express each one aspect in a little bit altered kinds or as utilized in quite a few functional methods. The element's place at the periodic desk is pinpointed on a mini rendering of the desk and an illustrated scale of the element's boiling and/or melting issues seems to be on each one web page in addition to a density scale that runs alongside the bottom. 

Packed with attention-grabbing info, this mixture of reliable technological know-how and beautiful inventive pictures is definitely the right reward e-book for each sentient creature within the universe.

Includes a tear-out poster of Theodore Gray's iconic Photographic Periodic Table!
