Over the years I've created a number of different things you can buy. Some of them, like posters and placemats, I sell directly, while others are sold by publishers I work with. I've tried to collect all of them here. Products you can order directly from me have prices and an Add to Cart button. Products you get elsewhere have links to where you can buy them (e.g. Amazon or the App Store).. 

These can be broadly divided into four worlds: Printed, Quilted, Laser-cut, and Apps.

Special Offer!

In celebration of the completion of the long-planned trilogy—The Elements, Molecules, and Reactions—we are offering a special deal: All three books wrapped up in periodic table wrapping paper, for a special price. In case you need a gift for someone over the next few months, this is it! You really don't need to consider anything else, do you?

Printed Things

The Elements (Autographed Copy)
29.95

This is it: The best book about elements ever, and I'm not just saying that because I wrote it. I'm saying that because I wrote it and my ego is out of control. But seriously, this book has sold over a million copies in 23 languages, and has been downloaded even more than that in iPad App form. People like it. Your nephew who is into science will like it. Anyone who gets this book as a gift will think you're just the most amazing person for having found them such a lovely and unexpectedly delightful item. If you don't believe me, just check out my Amazon reviews: 275 five-star reviews as of this moment. Which I guess does raise the point that you can order this book from Amazon, or any other online bookseller, instead of buying it here. In fact, it's cheaper from anyone else, and you'll probably get it faster too. The only reason to buy it directly from me is if you want an autographed copy. (Especially for international orders you can probably get it much cheaper elsewhere.)

(For amusement, feel free to check out my three one-star reviews. Two of them complain that their paperback edition fell apart (I sell only the hardcover on my site), and one complains that I have a liberal agenda because apparently I said something about global warming.)

Molecules (Autographed Copy)
29.95

Molecules is the sequel to the best-selling The Elements. It continues the story of chemistry by showing what happens when you link elements into molecules. 

Like The Elements, Molecules is filled with big beautiful photographs (taken by my long-time collaborator Nick Mann, who took most of the photos in The Elements as well). And like The Elements, it's also filled with stories about the many objects shown. If you liked The Elements, you will definitely like Molecules!

Order here if you want an autographed copy directly from me. If you just want the book fast and cheap, you're probably better off ordering it from one of the online booksellers.

Reactions (Autographed Copy)
29.95

Reactions: An Illustrated Exploration of Elements, Molecules, and Change in the Universe is the third and final installment in the trilogy of The Elements, Molecules, and Reactions. You start with Elements, put them together into Molecules, and then mix the molecules together to get Reactions. Together these three books cover the whole of chemistry in pictures and stories. And they look great together on a shelf. If you have any of the previous books, you should definitely get this one (and if you don't, then you should get this one and the previous ones).

Order here if you want an autographed copy directly from me. If you just want the book fast and cheap, you're probably better off ordering it from an online bookseller.

Beautiful Periodic Table Posters
from 15.00

This iconic periodic table poster can be found in school, universities, homes, libraries, and even television shows (Hannah Montana, MythBusters, NUMB3RS, The Ellen Degeneres Show, etc). The 27" x 53" (68cm x 134cm) size is huge, laminated, and double-sided (the back side includes more data about each element, but a smaller photo). The 20" x 40" (50cm x 100cm) is closer to the size of a normal poster, and is only single-sided (but still laminated). All versions are printed in Pennsylvania on top-quality paper with high-resolution printing methods.

A two-pack of the large size is available at a special price in case you want to hang both sides facing out.

PLEASE NOTE: The 27" x 53" size has been updated to include all the most recently named elements. All elements from 1 to 118 now have final, approved names, so this is it, there will be no more changes to the standard periodic table. (The 20" x 40" size remains un-updated until we run out of stock, sorry.)

Periodic Table Placemats (including 3D!)
from 5.00

We offer two kinds of photo periodic table placemats. The Laminated version is printed on top-quality paper and then laminated with a heavy, completely waterproof coating that is sealed around the edges. The lenticular 3D version is made entirely of plastic and is thus inherently waterproof. Both cost the same, and both are available individually or in 3- or 6-packs.

PLEASE NOTE: The lenticular 3D placemats have been updated to include all the most recently named elements. All elements from 1 to 118 now have final, approved names, so this is it, there will be no more changes to the standard periodic table. (The 2D laminated placemat remains un-updated until stock runs out, sorry.)

Completely Mad Science (Autographed Copy)
25.99

Theodore Gray's Completely Mad Science, (autographed copy). This is a combined volume that includes everything from both Mad Science and Mad Science 2, plus new articles that don't appear in either of those books. This is the book you want to get if you want to learn about all kinds of things that you shouldn't do (plus a few that are fine even for kids). A stern warnings section tries to make clear which is which, warning about real dangers without knee-jerk over-warning just because vinegar is involved (as you so often see with this sort of book).

Order here if you want an autographed copy directly from me. If you just want the book fast and cheap, you're probably better off ordering it from an online bookseller.

I used to manufacture these card decks myself, but now they are published by the same publisher that does my books, which means you can buy them in book stores and from online retailers.

My publisher wanted to create a follow-on book to The Elements sooner than I was able to produce one, so I ended up partnering with my friend Simon Quellen Field to produce this work. "Vault book" means it's got little envelopes and bits of real elements scattered in it. It's a nice book, but frankly, if you're only going to get one, get the original Elements book. The Vault book is available from bookstores and online retailers.
