Reviews

"Crammed to the brim with whimsical line drawings depicting the subjects' hobbies, romantic partners, favorite articles of clothing, vices, and more, each page explodes with creative and intriguing details. Hancock has captured the essence of his subjects with these snarky and humorous mini-biographies. Browsers will be in for a treat, and more artistic readers may even be inspired to create their own portraits of celebrities or friends." - School Library Journal
"In Artists, Writers, Thinkers, Dreamers: Portraits of Fifty Famous Folks & All Their Weird Stuff, artist James Gulliver Hancock illustrates historical icons in a fun, infographic style - surrounded by their possessions, baggage, favorite locations and personality quirks. You're guaranteed to come away with new facts to cover any lull in cocktail party conversation - Abraham Lincoln started Thanksgiving? Albert Einstein hated Scrabble and didn't believe in marriage? Take that awkward party silences!' - Design*Sponge
