Praise

“A tribute to Primo Levi as much as it is to the remarkable carbon atom. For to John, as to many others, chancing upon ‘The Periodic Table’ was transformative. The images you see testify to how different the world becomes after that book finds its way into our imagination. . . . Here John Barnett invites us to follow the atom in its wondrous graphic journey.” 
—Roald Hoffmann, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry (from the foreword)

“A delightfully imaginative story of the whole wide universe and the mysterious connectedness of every little thing in it, including you and me. Barnett explores the magical continuity—the ebb and flow—of all matter with vivid intimacy and quirky humor, and his gorgeous hand-drawn illustrations will absolutely stun you. . . . I’ll be urging this superb book on anyone I know at all interested in nature, art, and humanity.”
—Rosemary Mahoney, author of Down the Nile and For the Benefit of Those Who See

“John Barnett’s book is artful chemistry: out of the movements of atoms, he creates poetry. Prepare for a brainy—and beautifully illustrated—intellectual adventure!”
George Zaidan, executive producer at The American Chemical Society, author of Ingredients
