Elementary Animation

You may already know Theo Gray, collector of elements and passionate lover of chemistry, for his remarkable wooden Periodic Table Table.Or you may have seen his book Mad Science or his columns in Popular Science.

When I met Theo, he was carrying a spinthariscope in his backpack, which instantly endeared him to me.

Theo has a new book coming out, for which you can see a Youtube trailer: The Elements. This doubles as the first authorized video of Professor Tom Lehrer's eponymous song. For that reason alone, you'll want to see it.

The Elements is due to be published in October.
