Thunder & Lightning: Weather Past, Present, Future

“Lauren Redniss is unique, one of the most creative science writers of our time — her combination of beautiful artwork, reporting, and poetic prose brings science to life in ways that words alone simply cannot…This is an important book about a topic that couldn’t be more important to us all.”

— Rebecca Skloot

Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie, A Tale of Love and Fallout

“Redniss’ achievement is a celebration of the essential power of books to inform, charm, and transport. In marrying the graphic and visual arts with biography and cultural history, she has expanded the realm of non-fiction.”


Century Girl: 100 Years in the Life of Doris Eaton Travis, Last Living Star of the Ziegfeld Follies

“A startlingly original graphic style... With its wild, ingenious melding of words and images, Century Girl is unlike anything I've seen before.”
