Synopsis
The Biographic senes 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 Edgar Degas (1834-1917) was a French artist and leading light of Impressionism, whose paintings brilliantly capture the movement of ballet dancers. What, perhaps, they don't know is that by his mid-twenties he had made over 700 copies of other artists' works; that he produced 1,500 studies of ballet dancers, one of which sold in 1999 for over GBP17 million; and that, although Degas exhibited only one sculpture in his lifetime, 150 wax figures were found in his studio after his death.

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 "Blending the essential with the trivial..." - The Art Mag, December 2017
