C is for Marie Curie

The first woman to win a Nobel Prize, and the only woman to win prizes in two categories.  "Because of their levels of radioactivity, her papers from the 1890s are considered too dangerous to handle. Even her cookbook is highly radioactive. They are kept in lead-lined boxes, and those who wish to consult them must wear protective clothing." (thanks, Wikipedia!)

This one was supposed to be very different, but I got carried away and it turned into something completely other.  Please excuse the line through the middle-- had to be scanned in two parts, and I didn't feel like using photoshop on that whole teal area.
