Description - Great Lives in Graphics: Nikola Tesla by GMC Editors
Great Lives in Graphics: Nikola Tesla is a graphic retelling of Tesla's story which gives children a colourful snapshot of his life and the world in which he grew up, whilst educating them on everything from alternating current to the power of the imagination. You may already know that Nikola Tesla was an electrical engineer, but did you know that he was born during a lightning storm? Or that he had a phobia of pearls? 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.
