My book The Elements is based on photographs I've been collecting at my website periodictable.com for many years. The website includes not just pictures, but also more detailed descriptions than we could fit in the book, and most importantly, it includes full 360-degree rotating videos of almost all the objects. You really won't find this kind of resources anywhere else for any other subject, so please enjoy.
If you don't have the book yet, please don't think this is page is a substitute for the real thing. Aside from the fact that people buying the book (and my other photo periodic table products) is what pays for me being able to continue hosting the website, there's really no substitute for a paper book in your hands. The book also makes a fabulous gift, and you can't give a website as a gift!
For the convenience of people who have the book, I've listed all the samples found on each page in the book, so you can easy look them up. There are quite a few more samples listed on the website that didn't make the cut for the book, so you may want to browse around some at the website.
