The AHRC-funded Picturing Science project is based in the Department of Typography & Graphic Communication, which is home to the Otto and Marie Neurath Isotype Collection.

We have assembled an excellent cross-disciplinary team: designers, science communicators, educationists, teachers and curators.

We are working with teachers and children in schools in Reading, and with trainee teachers at Reading’s Institute of Education.


Our Marie Neurath: Picturing Science exhibition is now online. Delighted to share the Otto and Marie Neurath Isotype Collection with you. Enjoy.
