Overview

Dignifying Science by Donna Barr, Ramona Fradon, Stephanie Gladden, Mary Fleener

Dignifying Science is the newest book from G.T. Labs that tellstrue stories about scientists in comics form. This 144 page tradepaperback features famous women scientists including Marie Curie, Emmy Noether, Lise Meitner, Rosalind Franklin, Barbara McClintock, Birute Galdikas, and (believe it or not) Hedy Lamarr. Scientists and non-scientists alike will appreciate the human context this award-winning anthology gives to some of the most famous names in the history of discovery.

With stories written by Jim Ottaviani and art by notable illustrators such as Donna Barr, Mary Fleener, Stephanie Gladden, Roberta Gregory, Lea Hernandez, Carla Speed McNeil, Linda Medley, Jen Sorensen, Anne Timmons and comics legends Ramona Fradon and Marie Severin, this handsome trade paperback, complete with a full-color dust jacket, will please readers of all ages. Notes and references at the end lead them to discover even more on their own!

An Eisner nominee (like its companion volume Two-Fisted Science) and Lulu of the Year nominee for 1999, Dignifying Science has earned praise from the toughest critics of all: the scientists themselves. Discover Magazine (February, 2000) says "In Ottaviani's hands, cartooning becomes exciting education. It's a tribute to Ottaviani's breezy style that one wants to dig into [the] references and learn a little nuclear physics. Now that is a superheroic achievement." Simon Singh, award-winning author of The Code Book and Fermat's Enigma writes: "When it comes to popularising science, Jim Ottaviani's comic books do an excellent job of telling scientific stories in a fun and absorbing way. His latest, Dignifying Science, is a beautifully drawn series of stories about women who made major contributions to science and technology, but who have been largely forgotten..."
