Description - Great Lives in Graphics: Jane Austen by GMC Editors
Great Lives in Graphics: Jane Austen is a graphic retelling of Austen's story which gives children a colourful snapshot of her life and the world in which she grew up, whilst educating them on everything from Regency culture to the wonders of storytelling. You may already know that Jane Austen was a writer, but did you know that she was one of eight children? Or that she brewed her own beer? Great Lives in Graphics reimagines the lives of extraordinary people in vivid technicolour, presenting 250+ fascinating facts in a new and exciting way. It takes the essential dates and achievements of each person's life, mixes them with lesser-known facts and trivia, and uses infographics to show them in a fresh visual way that is genuinely engaging for children and young adults. The result is a colourful, fascinating and often surprising representation of that person's life, work and legacy. Using timelines, maps, repeated motifs and many more beautiful and informative illustrations, readers learn not just about the main subject of the book, but also about the cultural background of the time in which they lived.
