The paperback edition of the bestselling book about the periodic table, which has grown into a line of The Elements-related products including calendars, posters, card decks, jigsaw puzzles, and a bestselling iPad app. The Elements is a mesmerizing photographic display of the 118 elements in the periodic table. Based on seven years of research and photography, the photographs in the book make up the most complete visual catalog ever assembled of the elements of the periodic table. Six months after the book was published in the US, Theodore Gray and his newly founded ebook development company, Touch Press, developed The Elements for iPad. It was one of the most talked about apps at the launch of the iPad in April 2010, making its way into all the publicity and even into several Apple advertisements. The Elements is beloved by students and adults alike, and even by toddlers who are captivated by the photographs and have learned to name the elements!
