Great Lives in Graphic Form. Biographic
The Biographic 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 all of them in vivid snapshots. Many people know that Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn (1606-1669) was a Dutch painter and etcher, a master of light and shadow who is regarded as one of the greatest of all portrait artists. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he taught over 50 apprentices; that he produced over 2,000 artworks, of which 120 were self-portraits; and that, after buying one of the finest houses in Amsterdam, he ran up so many debts that he was forced to sell his wife's grave. Biographic: Rembrandt presents an instant portrait of his life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"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 "Blending the essential with the trivial..." - The Art Mag, December 2017
