Biographic : Biographic: Austen

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. The result is a quickfire journey through truths and trivia that is the most entertaining way to follow in the footsteps of the men and women whose lives have most influenced our own.

Many people know that Jane Austen was one of the greatest literary voices in history. 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; and that she once accepted a marriage proposal, but changed her mind the following day. Biographic: Austen presents 50 irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the author behind the words.
