Lauren Redniss, author of Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie, debuts her new title. Developed while she was an artist in residence at the Museum,Thunder & Lighting: Weather, Past, Present, Future brings her unique style to a journey from the driest desert on Earth to an island in the Arctic and beyond. She considers the danger and beauty of weather, how it informs our history and the world’s religions, and the forces that drive these meteorological events.

About Thunder & Lightning:

Weather is the very air we breathe—it shapes our daily lives and alters the course of history. In Thunder & Lightning, Lauren Redniss tells the story of weather and humankind through the ages.

This wide-ranging work roams from the driest desert on earth to a frigid island in the Arctic, from the Biblical flood to the defeat of the Spanish Armada. Redniss visits the headquarters of the National Weather Service, recounts top-secret rainmaking operations during the Vietnam War, and examines the economic impact of disasters like Hurricane Katrina. Drawing on extensive research and countless interviews, she examines our own day and age, from our most personal decisions—Do I need an umbrella today?—to the awesome challenges we face with global climate change.

Redniss produced each element of Thunder & Lightning: the text, the artwork, the covers, and every page in between. She created many of the images using the antiquated printmaking technique copper plate photogravure etching. She even designed the book’s typeface.

The result is a book unlike any other: a spellbinding combination of storytelling, art, and science.
