Sur une substance nouvelle radio-active, contenue dans la pechblende.

C. R. Acad. Sci. (Paris), 127, 175-78, 1215-17, 1898.

The Curies, studying the radioactivity of minerals containing uranium and thorium, isolated from pitchblend a substance which they called radium and which they showed to possess an astonishing degree of radioactivity. They shared the Nobel Prize for Physics with Becquerel in 1903, and Marie Curie received the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1911.

Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie, a tale of love and fallout.

New York: HarperCollins, 2011.

This very beautiful biographical work on the Curies is also an artist's book, with every page filled with artistic imagery drawn by the artist. It has been characterized as part history, part love story, part artwork. It has also been characterized as "visual non-fiction."  Most of the images in the book are cyanotypes in a wide variety of colors. Another remarkable feature of the book is that it was typeset in Eusapia LR, a typeface created by the artist.
