The House of Illustration, King’s Cross
House of Illustration celebrates Marie Neurath with an exhibition of ground-breaking graphic design that transformed children’s learning from the 1940s to today.
Marie Neurath – an émigré graphic designer and author, led a team at the Isotype Institute that produced over 80 illustrated children’s books from 1944-1971. The pioneering collaboration between researchers, artists and writers produced infographics and illustrated diagrams to explain scientific concepts.
The exhibition will 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.
