Overview

Many people know that Sherlock Holmes was an enigmatic detective who, with his companion Dr. Watson, pursued criminals through Victorian and Edwardian England. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he investigated 60 fully documented cases, including 37 murders; that 46 of those cases began in his offices at 221B Baker Street; that only three of them involved his nemesis Moriarty; and that in his later years Holmes spent his time beekeeping on the Sussex Downs. Biographic Sherlock presents an investigative guide to his life and work, with an array of clues and observations converted into infographics to reveal the detective behind the detection. ?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 Sherlock Holmes fue un enigmático detective que, junto con su compañero, el doctor Watson, persiguió a delincuentes en la Inglaterra victoriana y eduardiana. Lo que quizá no se sepa es que investigó 60 casos completamente documentados, 37 de los cuales fueron asesinatos; que 46 de esos casos empezaron en su despacho de Baker Street; que solo en tres de ellos se enfrentó a su némesis, el profesor Moriarty, y que durante sus últimos años se dedicó a la apicultura en Sussex. Biográfico Sherlock presenta una guía de investigación sobre su vida y su trabajo, mediante una amplia diversidad de pistas y observaciones convertidas en atractivas imágenes que revelan al detective que subyace tras la investigación.

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
