Marcus Sedgwick on the Enigma of Snowflakes

From one of our favourite small press publishers Little Toller, Snow is Marcus Sedgwick's exquisite monograph split into six chapters, mirroring the sides of a snowflake itself, looking at snow as a measure of climate change, as a symbol of Christmas and as a scientific curiosity. Considering the work of ‘Snowflake’ Bentley, the person credited with the discovery that two snowflakes are never alike, for Waterstones the author discusses this most fleeting of natural geometries.
