Overview

Many people know that David Bowie was an iconic singer, songwriter and actor, whose lyrics, performances and ever-changing persona were at the heart of pop culture for over five decades. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he smoked 80 cigarettes a day, acted in 27 films, sold over 140 million albums and once shared a Berlin apartment with Iggy Pop. This book presents an instant impression of his life, work and fame, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the music.La colección Biográfico ofrece una mirada completamente nueva de las vidas de grandes creadores y pensadores de la historia. Recoge 50 fechas, hechos, pensamientos, hábitos y éxitos que los definen y los plasma mediante vívidas instantáneas en forma de infografías. Es de sobra conocido que David Bowie (1947-2016) fue un cantante, autor y actor icónico, cuyas letras, actuaciones e imagen pública formaron parte central de la cultura pop durante más de cinco décadas. Lo que quizás no se sepa es que sabía tocar 14 instrumentos, incluidos el saxofón, el koto y la viola; que fue el primer gran artista en lanzar un sencillo descargable; que vendió más de 140 millones de álbumes, y que durante un tiempo compartió apartamento con Iggy Pop en Berlín. Biográfico Bowie ofrece una impresión de su vida, obra y legado, mediante una serie de hechos y cifras impactantes convertidos en atractivas imágenes que descubren al artista más allá de su música.  

Reviews

"The Biographic Series is an exciting new collection of biographies about some of the world's greatest thinkers, writers, artists and cultural innovators. Whilst each book could be read cover to cover, readers are more likely to randomly select pages, stopping and pausing to find out more about the subject . . . The infographics are visually appealing and entertaining, perhaps reinvigorating an interest in the subject . . .The legacy of artists, such as Monet and Van Gogh are particularly well documented in their Biographic." —Armadillo magazine, on the English-language edition
