Radioactive

Radioactive is one of my favorite books. Thank you Jim Happer for¬†radioactive-NEW-small¬†giving me this most thoughtful gift. Laura Redniss’ richly illustrated story of Marie and Pierre Curie is a love story, artists journal, historical and scientific account of a couple whose work would change the way we see the world. Redniss’ eye for detail, accuracy and authenticity is seen at every level even down to the light sensitive paper she used.
