Description - Biographic: Audrey: Great Lives in Graphic Form by Sophie Collins
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. Each Biographic title is designed to be as entertaining as it is informative. Timelines not only pinpoint significant dates, but set them in the context and culture of their times. Dynamic maps locate biographical events alongside other points of interest. Character traits are illuminated by visual comparisons. Most people know that Audrey Hepburn (1929 1993) was a Hollywood movie star and world famous fashion icon. What, perhaps, they don't know is that she is one of a few select people to have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony; that she could speak 5 different languages; that she owned a pet deer named Pippin; and that she broke her back after being thrown off her horse during the filming of Unforgiven. Biographic: Audrey presents an instant impression of her life, work and legacy, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the actor behind the movies. AUTHOR: Sophie Collins has worked in publishing for over thirty years, in roles ranging from author to publisher, and on projects ranging from major exhibition catalogues to graphic novels. She spent 15 years as a publisher, commissioning an eclectic list of illustrated non-fiction and writing a number of books alongside it. She lives in Sussex, England
