The snowflake photograph collections on this site enjoy a constant stream of visitors. A collection of 55 hand pulled prints of these marvels has also been displayed locally here in west Michigan in several venues.
The next logical step – a Book!
I once read a book, and it was great. I think it was about a little white footed mouse who drove off in a car. I don’t remember the details. But there’s something nice about having a book in your hands – who likes to curl up with their laptop by the fire place or in bed at night?
So this summer I finally pulled it together and prepared a collection of snowflake photographs to be presented in book form and called Imperfect Symmetry.
I received the first proof copies form lulu.com last week, and they looked pretty good. I never expected to get everything “just so” on the first try - snowflake photography is a delicate subject, and the images can be really difficult to get to print properly. But to my surprise only 3 of the 35 images needed to be reworked, and so within a few hours of having received the proof a revised copy was prepped and on its way back to lulu for publication.
Assuming all is well with this revision, Imperfect Symmetry will be available on lulu.com within the week – two at most if further re-do’s are needed. Aside from 35 specially selected snow crystal photographs, a few comments and observations from your humble narrator are also included.
Stay tuned for the publication announcement!
UPDATE: The book is now available at www.lulu.com/cassino. Click here to order a copy.
coolness. I think I’ll have to order one. You’ll offer autographed copies, right?

A signed copy? That can be arranged, no problem. I have a few dozen copies on the way for art fairs etc. I’ll shoot you an email when they get here!
Dude! You totally inspire me! I’ve had my photography degree for almost two and a half years now, and I still haven’t really been focusing on anything really amazing or original like this! I’m almost ashamed to talk to you. All I’ve been using my camera for lately is taking pictures of my baby. Anyway, I’m going to start following your blog . . . If I remember . . . and I hope to buy your book when it comes out.
Thank you for sharing your incredible work!
