    PDF NEW [Radioactive Marie and Pierre Curie A Tale of Love and Fallout] This was my first graphic novel well not really a novel graphic work of non fiction? too long and I think the medium may just not be for me If I had to describe this book in one word that word would be distractingI was distracted by everything particularly the pictures and the artistic but annoying to read font The narrative itself was distracting jumping around in time and space even though it all connected back to radioactivity

This is an illustrated biography of Marie and Pierre Curie and an impressionistic exploration of the marks their pioneering research left on the world As history I thought it was great Extensive reliance on primary sources juxtaposition of the past Marie s letters a Russian map of Chernobyl and the present a phone interview with a nuclear security expert collages by a survivor of Hiroshima and a thorough list of annotated citations all made for a compelling believable experience As a work of art the singularity of the work is impressive Redniss not only created all the visuals and wrote the text but she also designed the font and I assume did all her own typography It s not comics no attempts to depict time with seuential images but this form of illustrated non fiction is certainly uniue and interestingThat said I m not sure what the format contributes to the history or to Redniss s interpretation The illustrations are beautiful ghostly sad largely stemming from the luminescent ualities of the cyanotypes and a palette of cool blues greens and oranges radium as Redniss points out in a colophon glows faintly blue all of which contribute to the mystery and melancholy underlying the work and lives of the Curies but I find the line drawings inappropriately dehumanized Faces are mostly expressionless with deeply lined eyes but otherwise rendered with minimal even child like line work often resembling some of Picasso sketches The effect is eerie and I don t think it illuminates the interaction between the deep passions and eually powerful intellects of the Curies in the way the text doesHonestly my favorite portion of the book was the uote from Loie Fuller in the beginning herself a fascinating person at the edge of art and science which captures the strange liminal sensation of the time and of this book when science s push against the boundaries of mystery was something you could see and touchTo see to feel to smell to hear to taste these are the only invisible facts but which we acknowledge are real the sensations of horror that kills of grief that prostrates joy that uplifts and faith that cures what if these things can be registered and seen apart from the body are they not then material things And may they not indicate that other invisible materials exist which are in reality material if we had the human capacity for observing them Perhaps Radium and its sister elements may one day help us here We may not believe but we do not know that we should not believeAlso check out this glowing apologies review in the Times

DOWNLOAD ð PADDINGTONFESTIVAL.CO.UK ¿ Lauren Redniss FREE DOWNLOAD ↠ Radioactive Marie and Pierre Curie A Tale of Love and Fallout Lauren Redniss ¿ 1 FREE DOWNLOAD Designed 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 archiva. It seems absurd to try to talk about this book without you being able to see it It is easy enough to describe the story Lauren Redniss tells in this graphic biography but hard to describe the emotional colour her images bring to her words The details of Marie Sklodowksa and Pierre Curie s joint biographies are reasonably familiar to readers of science history his early scientific talent and her struggle to get a scientific education their romance and marriage their separate and joint research and distillation of first radium and then polonium his early death and the famous story of Marie taking over his chair at the Sorbonne walking in and picking up his lecture where he had left it Marie s ongoing work and passionate and scandalous affair with Paul Langevin her work in World War One with mobile x ray units where she was joined by her teenage daughter Irene who herself went on to become a nuclear physicist also working with her husband Frederick Joliot and like her parents before her sharing a Nobel Prize with him Marie s death from aplastic pernicious anaemia the result of prolonged exposure to radiation in 1934 aged 66What Redniss brings to the pile of literature that already surrounds the couple is a sense of the passion of their relationship and especially of Marie as a physical and sensual woman that is coupled to the intensity of their scientific research I have always been somewhat puzzled looking at the photos of Marie Curie once out of her teenage years that this rather shadowy rather dowdy woman could have been at the centre of one of France s most titillating love stories that she could actually have duels fought over her But Redniss makes tremendous use of archival material From Marie s diary just before Pierre s death written as the family was on holidayWe collected flowering chestnut branches and gathered a huge bouuet of large water buttercups that you loved so We slept nuzzled against each other as always I sat down against you and lay across your body I had a little clenching in my heart holding you there but I felt happy And then after his death run down by a horse drawn cart on a rainy Paris streetThey brought you in and placed you on the bed I kissed you and you were still supple and almost warm Pierre my Pierre you are there calm as a poor wounded man resting in his sleep his head bandaged Your face is sweet as if you dream My Pierre I got up after after slept rather well relatively calm That was barely a uarter of an hour ago and now I want to howl again like a savage beastFour years after death Marie fell heavily for his former student the married scientist Paul Langevin The two exchanged torrid letters when separated even if only for a matter of hours From LangevinI am trembling with impatience at the thought of seeing you return at last and of telling you how much I missed you I kiss you tenderly awaiting tomorrowRedniss conveys information in a small number of words than you would expect possible She doesn t stint on the science or the story and her style is personal but never uirky or too I thinky You get the sense of someone who has conducted a great deal of researcj and then pared back and pared back and pared back without losing any colourAnd colour is at the heart of this book Where Judith Schalansky s Atlas of Remote Islands similarly a mix of words and images was restrained in its palette Redniss book is joyous and unbounded The end papers are ochre Rothko esue colour fields that feel soaked in pigment each chapter is signalled by a midnight blue double page spread with spidery white words picked out across it the water buttercups are a radiant spray of yellow and red blue and green While Redniss drawing style is not one I would spend time with on a wall somewhere between Clemente de Chirico and the happiest bits of Expressionism paired with her story it worksIn particular Redniss has adapted the photographic printing techniue of cyanotype where chemically treated paper is exposed to sunlight with the positive spaces masked the sunlight causes a reaction that turns the exposed paper Prussian blue the colour of old fashioned blueprints The areas that were masked seem when revealed to let light shine through from a hidden source As Redniss writes in an endnoteUsing this process to create the images in this book made sense to me for a number of reasons First the negative of an image gives an impression of an internal light a sense of glowing that I felt captured what Marie Curie called radium s spontaneous luminosity Second because photographic imaging was central to the discovery both of X rays and of radioactivity Last I later learned Prussian blue capsules were approved by the US Food and Drug Administration as a safe and effective treatment for internal contamination by radioactive cesium and radioactive thalliumInterpolated with the story of Marie and Pierre s life is the 20th century s radioactive history Chernobyl Three Mile Island radiation therapy fossy jaw Hiroshima and Nagasaki Redniss finds one small detail to illustrate each of these big stories a woman in Pennsylvania who collects photographs and presses flowers mutated by the fallout from Three Mile Island a scientist who researches birds in the area surrounding Chernobyl a Japanese woman who was 13 on the day the bomb dropped on Hiroshima who makes for Redniss a paper cutout that shows how her father s blackened skin peeled off his body exposing the red muscle underneath Never sentimental these interludes especially this last have incredible emotional heft And finally the cover glows in the dark What delight can you ask for
