Radioactive - Lauren Redniss

Radioactive - Lauren Redniss (2011)

It is hard to explain the beauty of this unusual book, without seeing it.  I chanced upon it at the Unity bookshop here in Wellington, and then went and searched it out in the library catalogue.  It tells the story of Marie and Pierre Curie, their work and life together.  The star of the show though is the lovely handwritten typography and original illustrations, part graphic novel, that somehow makes the blend of romantic story and physics work together harmoniously.
