"Radioactive offer innumerable wonders....In this wholly original book about passion and discovery Lauren Redniss has invented her own unique form." --Nicole Krauss, author of Great House and The History of Love

"Quite unlike any book I have ever read...sheer imaginative genius." --Malcolm Gladwell

Radioactive is the visual journey into the life of Marie Curie, as told through the dazzling collage style of acclaimed author and artist Lauren Redniss. A brilliant visual storyteller, Redniss has hand-designed more than 100 color collages to tell Curie's story, fascinating in its scientific significance and its sometimes whimsical, sometimes haunting mix of romance and intrigue. Bringing together archival photos, images, and clippings with dazzling line drawings and a compelling narrative, Radioactive is far more than just an art book or a graphic novel: It is a stunning visual biography and a true work of art.

Gorgeously produced, this graphic biography is just as clever and inventive as Marie and Pierre Curie! Informative, romantic, and beautiful to look at, this book is absolute perfection.
