Item description for Collectible Snowdomes (Collectibles) by Leslie Carnot...

Each and every snowdome presents an irresistable temptation: to upend it and watch the tiny snowstorm coat its little world in white. There's nothing to lose, so why not give in to the urge? More than mere baubles, snowdomes tell the tale of our recent past. They show holiday trends, from mountains to the seaside. They also act as mini memorials to movie stars and important historic events. All but forgotten in the 1980's, snowdomes have made a comeback with a new generation of avid collectors. Helped by advances in production technology, the snowdome universe is at a lively peak, with novel models popping up all over the place.

Reviews - What do customers think about Collectible Snowdomes (Collectibles)?

It ain't necessarily snow.  Jan 6, 2003
Another one of those books that feature items, which if seen individually, would not be too interesting but put 350 of them in a neat square, well printed, all color book and they come alive. Each dome has a page to itself with a caption. Most of the objects inside the domes seem pretty tacky to me, produced as they are for the downmarket tourist trade but near the end of the book there are several advertising domes that look as if their contents have had some thought given to them, M&Ms and the Golden Arches of McDonalds look pretty cool surrounded by snow. The back of the book has a bibliography, web sites (naturally) and index.

Books about snowdomes are pretty sparse, only three are listed in the bibliography, the one I have is 'Snowdomes' by Nancy McMichael, this has a better history than the Carnot book and a more flamboyant presentation and it has a picture of a larger-than-life dome on the front cover whose globe area is actually plastic with a liquid and white flakes inside, it must have been a bookbinder's nightmare to produce.

Flammarion, the French publishers of Snowdomes also have other books in their Collectible series, I have one on wristwatches and another on pocket knives and as they are all the same square shape they do look good on a bookshelf. All I need now are Collectible books on jukeboxes, QSL cards, model Greyhound buses, pin-up playing cards, Santa Claus, TV station test cards and anything to do with the 1939 New York World's Fair!
