The delightful Jenna Whyte got in touch with me recently to tell me about her new book, The Illustrated Guide to the Elements vol 2.This second book has more illustrations of the elements portrayed as Victorian women.
The book is written as a case book, much the same way a Sherlock Holmes book may be written. Each lady represents a chemical element and their personalities reflect the characteristics of that element.
Jenna said “The volume is an easy to understand guide through the Alkaline Earth Metals, and Transition Metals as well as their sub fractions: Coinage Metals, Refractory Metals and Platinum Group Metals.”
She continued: “The Guide provides a glimpse inside the chemical world driven by the buying, selling, begging, stealing of electrons and includes a hand painted portrait of each femme fatale.”
The A5 sized booklet costs £15 and is available on Etsy and Amazon via the following links:
