Synopsis
The Biographies series presents an entirely new way of looking at the lives of the world's greatest thinkers and creatives. It takes the 50 defining facts, dates, thoughts, habits, and achievements of each subject, and uses infographics to convey each of them in vivid snapshots. The result is a quickfire journey through truths and trivia that is the most entertaining way to follow in the footsteps of the men and women whose lives have most influenced our own. Many people know that Leonardo da Vinci was an Italian polymath, one of the great creative minds of the Italian Renaissance. What, perhaps, they don't know is that as an ambidextrous, paranoid dyslexic, Leonardo could draw forwards with one hand while writing backwards with the other; and that he invented an armoured car, a flying ship and contact lenses. Biographic: Leonardo presents an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the master behind the masterpieces.

Newspapers & Magazines
"The Biographic Series is an exciting new collection of biographies about some of the world's greatest thinkers, writers, artists and cultural innovators. Whilst each book could be read cover to cover, readers are more likely to randomly select pages, stopping and pausing to find out more about the subject. Whilst there is a risk that readers may miss the central narrative of the subject's life, the infographics are visually appealing and entertaining, perhaps reinvigorating an interest in the subject...The legacy of artists, such as Monet and Van Gogh are particularly well documented in their Biographic." - Armadillo magazine, https: //www.armadillomagazine.co.uk, Summer 2017
