Daily Book Graphics #115 / Popular Science For Young People

These illustrations are from Popular Science Presents: The Encyclopedia of Popular Science for Young People Volume #5, published in 1963. My favorite feature of this book is the way that they illustrate the great men of science as if they are totally pissed off. Presumably they are trying to make it look like they're thinking really hard, but then J.P. Joule is looking right at us like he is going to attack.
