After putting in a request for an interlibrary loan on the history of Classics Illustrated comics, I decided I wanted to buy these two books to go with the Elemental Hexagons deck I ordered.
1) Nature’s Building Blocks: An A-Z Guide to the Elements by John Emsley
2) Creations of Fire: Chemistry’s Lively History from Alchemy to the Atomic Age by Cathy Cobb
I love books about the history of Science, particularly if they have comprehensive entries in dictionary form as the first one does.
To round out the order I ordered A Year in Japan by Chronicle Books–the nice card deck I’ve been looking forward to that Amazon.ca finally has in stock.
