Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Dignifying Science is the newest book from G.T. Labs that tells

true stories about scientists in comics form. This 144 page trade

paperback 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..." (The

Independent - London, 12 December 1999)
