Marie Neurath designed science books for children in the mid-20th century, using modernist visual techniques and illustrations to explain complex scientific ideas. She co-developed with Otto Neurath a simplified pictographic language called Isotype (International System of Typographic Picture Education) and here in this publication dissects the workings of the atom during a time when notions of nuclear power and atomic destruction were stirring.
