Review quote

Praise for "The Elements" "I don't know if this is the first coffee-table book paying lush photographic homage to the periodic table, but it is certainly the most gorgeous one I've seen." John Tierney, "The New York Times ""The Elements is a loving reimagination of the classic table." Wired "Gray's trademark dry wit and historical anecdotes bring even the most basic lumps to life." "Popular Science" "A great mix of science and art." "Discover""
