Love this. A few more views at the link. What do you think? Beneficial, or just another item for the rubbish heap?

In this beautiful, easy-to-read periodic table, created by London-based graphic designer Alison Haigh, each element is represented by a visualization of its electronic structure, rather than by numbers and letters.

The dots each represent electrons—so, hydrogen, which has an atomic number of 1, is the single dot in the upper lefthand corner.

It's certainly aesthetically attractive and a thing of beauty. However, for many years, Chemistry textbooks do give a view of electrons around the nucleus with correct numbers in each subshell around each atom. As a thing of beauty wonderful. For functionality, use a textbook. :)
