The Most Beautiful Periodic Tables in the World
(And one amateur science book)

These periodic tables are based on four years of painstaking photography. Praised by Nobel Laureates, teachers and artists alike, these posters and images are seen on TV and in magazines and museums around the world.

We have posters in three sizes, laminated placemats, amazing 3D prints where the samples pop out at you, and inexpensive letter size prints.

My new book, Mad Science, is finished! Based on five years of my Popular Science column, you need this book.
Extraordinarily lovely. A wonderful job both scientifically and artistically.
—Beth Burnside, Vice Chancellor for Research, UC Berkeley

Your periodic table is instructive and fun. I have put it up in my office. —Martin L. Perl, 1995 Nobel Laureate in Physics

NEW! I have just released the first new edition of my photo periodic table poster since its initial publication in 2006, and it includes a completely new reverse side with detailed technical data! (If you already have a copy of my poster, note that while the front side of the new one is basically the same, it includes a dozen new and improved objects, and better photographs of several of the old ones.)

There are now two versions of the poster available: The original design in 18" x 36" and 22" x 44" sizes, and a brand new double-sided design in a huge 27" x 53" size. The preview images below are scaled to represent the relative sizes. To give a sense of scale, most typical posters are 24" x 36", the same width as my smallest size.

The new double-sided poster is laminated on both sides and printed on very heavy 120 pound stock (more like card stock than ordinary paper). Because I know some people will not be able to decide which side to display, there's a substantial discount for buying two copies. That way you can have the best of both worlds! Click either side to see it much bigger. Or click to see up-close samples of the photo squares and data squares.

The two smaller sizes are printed on varnished 100lb cover stock (heavier than most posters), and the 18" x 36" size is laminated on the front face.

These smaller sizes do not include data on the back side, just one side full of beautiful pictures.

Please don't get the wrong impression about these smaller sizes: Even the smallest 18" x 36" size is as wide as a standard poster, and is a big and beautiful poster.
