About Artists, Writers, Thinkers, Dreamers
First of all, it’s not not normal that we feature more illustrational books, but in this case the lettering combined with the illustrations is fitting very beautifully together. This book is a very good almanac which surveys history’s most influental creative minds. Not only through the clothes they wore, objects they owned, their quirks, foibles and idiosyncrasies. Each historic icon is designed with a lot detail and creative claim. A small treasure which is getting us a little bit more next to them.
We recommend this book heavily, because it’s not only very entertaining but you can learn a lot about those persons. In the end it might be a good gift for your creative friends.
