Marie Neurath: Picturing Science

Ground-breaking graphic design that has transformed children’s learning from the 1940s to today

When, Where

Marie Neurath and her team at the Isotype Institute produced over 80 illustrated children’s books from 1944-1971 in a pioneering collaboration between researchers, artists and writers. Using infographics and illustrated diagrams to explain scientific concepts, Neurath’s books mark a defining moment in information design for children.

The exhibition will in include spreads and working materials from book series that Marie Neurath produced, including Wonder World of Nature and Wonders of the Modern World.

In partnership with the University of Reading and Design Science, supported by the Arts & Humanities Research Council.

The exhibition is part of Transforming science for young people: Marie Neurath and Isotype books for children, a project aiming to find new audiences for the approach to science communication taken by Marie Neurath.
