Great Lives in Graphics: Coco Chanel

The Great Lives in Graphics series is a new way of looking at the lives of famous and influential people. It takes the essential dates and achievements of each person’s life, mixes them with lesser-known facts and trivia, and uses infographics to show them in a fresh visual way that is genuinely engaging for children and young adults. The result is a colourful, fascinating and often surprising representation of that person’s life, work and legacy. Using timelines, maps, repeated motifs and many more beautiful and informative illustrations, readers learn not just about the main subject of the book but also about the cultural background of the time they lived in.

You may already know that Coco Chanel was a visionary who transformed the world of fashion, but did you know that she was also accused of being a secret agent for the Nazis during World War II? Or that she was superstitious and would read tarot cards to try to predict her future?
