The Biographics series presents an entirely new way of looking at the lives of the world’s greatest thinkers and creatives. It takes the 50 defining facts, dates, thoughts, habits, and achievements of each subject, and uses infographics to convey each of them in vivid snapshots.

Many people know that Frida Kahlo (1907 54) was a Mexican artist, a feminist icon who lived in the famous Blue House and whose work includes ‘The Two Fridas’. What, perhaps, they don’t know is that 55 of her 143 artworks are self-portraits; that her painting ‘Roots’ holds the record for a Latin American artwork, having sold for $5.6 million in 2006; that her love letters sold for $137,000; that she married her husband twice; or that she arrived for her first solo exhibition in an ambulance.

Biographic: Kahlo casts a modern eye over her life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the artist behind the pictures. AUTHOR: Author Sophie Collins has worked in publishing for over thirty years, in roles ranging from author to publisher, and on projects ranging from major exhibition catalogues to graphic novels. She spent 15 years as a publisher, commissioning an eclectic list of illustrated non-fiction and writing a number of books alongside it. Consultant Dr Diana Newall has lectured for 12 years on a range of subjects in Art History at numerous establishments including Sotheby’s Institute of Art and Birkbeck College, London.
