Overview

Many people know that Jane Austen (1775–1817) was one of the greatest literary voices in history, celebrated by critics and the public alike, who wrote Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. What, perhaps, they don't know is that she was one of eight children of a clergyman; that all of her novels were originally published anonymously, with one simply authored "By a Lady," and that she once accepted a marriage proposal, but changed her mind the following day. This handbook to her life and work presents an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the author behind the words.

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

"The appealing art and graphics in these short books belie the font of information found within, making the Biographic series a good starting place for reluctant student researchers or curious browsers." --Booklist
