I am so excited about this book which arrived today.  I first heard about Theodore Gray when I saw his popular YouTube clips a couple of years ago.  He sings his way through the periodic table and my favourite clip of his physical elements table.

This book is a wonderful addition to anyone's bookshelves.  It is a photographic journey through the entire periodic table.  Theo started his journey to collect samples of ALL the elements for his wooden periodic table a journey that was completed in seven years.  This collection now contains more than 2,300 objects representing every element on the periodic chart. The book contains a visual catalog of each element in it's pure form followed by an array of everyday objects containing the element. 

What's your favourite science resource for the Periodic Table of elements ?

 Welcome to Tuesdays Treasures.  I started these posts as a way of sharing great books in honour of my friend in New Zealand who would arrive with the treasures she had unearthed at her weekly trip to the library!

There are so many wonderful books out there hiding on shelves so I invite you to blog about a book on your shelf, one you're reading or one you found at the library. Grab the button for your post and add a link to your post below. I would love to read about your treasures.
