Ammonite Press have recently launched a new range of books called Biographic, which are design led, infographic-style biographies of artists, writers and scientists. They are, simply put, gorgeous.
The first that I came across was Biographic: Van Gogh, but the range will also soon include:
- Biographic: Kahlo
- Biographic: Monet
- Biographic: Shakespeare
- Biographic: Degas
- Biographic: Austen
- Biographic: Churchill
- Biographic: Leonardo
- Biographic: Rembrandt
- Biographic: Picasso
- Biographic: Warhol
The idea of using an infographic-style presentation for a book works fantastically, with so much information presented in an easy to digest way that also looks great. I’ve learnt a lot about van Gogh’s frankly tragic life, which I probably never would have otherwise, not being a big fan of heavy historical biographies.
I’m excited to get my hands on the rest of the series.
