Artists, Writers, Thinkers, Dreamers: Portraits of Fifty Famous Folks & All Their Weird Stuff |An illustrated book

We generally just post spectacular books, those we want in our library and we generally buy on an impulsive shopping on Amazon. This is the case of Artists, Writers, Thinkers, Dreamers: Portraits of Fifty Famous Folks & All Their Weird Stuff.

You have information, special facts about your fav nerd, beautiful illustrations and stunning calligraphy… you need nothing more!

“This cultural who’s-who illuminates 50 famous figures, from Leonardo da Vinci to Coco Chanel, through the fascinating trivia of their lives. Artist James Gulliver Hancock depicts historical icons in quirky annotated portraits surrounded by their associated possessions, baggage, and foibles. Hemingway’s hobbies, Amelia Earhart’s preferred dessert, Martin Luther King Jr.’s favorite TV show—each portrait reveals the ordinary quirks of these extraordinary people and captures their personalities in the process. An exquisitely illustrated almanac and cultural literacy cheat sheet, this fun and informative collection offers both history buffs and art lovers a treasure trove of interesting facts about beloved artists, writers, thinkers, and dreamers.”
