The 'Great Lives in Graphics' series is a new way of looking at the lives of famous and influential people. 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.
