International Year of Chemistry Posters

Did you know that 2011 is was the International Year of Chemistry?  Clearly I am a year late to this discovery! The posters to commemorate the year were created by designer Simon C. Page.
The year 2011 coincided with the 100th anniversary of the Nobel Prize awarded to Marie Curie. Madame Curie was the first person honored with two Nobel Prizes (in physics and chemistry) and the first female professor at the University of Paris - WOOT! 

The 10 posters are so modern and eye catching, I can totally see them gracing a budding little scientist's bedroom walls.  And at just $20 for a 12"x18", they won't break the bank. Aren't they just the perfect addition to my science-inspired inspiration board here?


All designs are available for purchase here. If you like them I recommended picking them up soon because the prices on past year designs seems to go up. 

In 2009 Page designed the poster series for the International Year of Astronomy and they are equally striking.  See those designs here.   Prices for 12"x18"s in that series are now $40 a piece.
