Synopsis
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 quick-fire 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 Jane Austen was one of the greatest literary voices in history. What, perhaps, they don't know is that she was one of eight children of a clergyman; that all of her novels were originally published anonymously; and that she once accepted a marriage proposal, but changed her mind the following day. Biographic: Austen presents an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the author behind the words.

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
