Great Lives in Graphics: Coco Chanel is a graphic retelling of Chanel's story which gives children a visual snapshot of her life and career, while educating them on everything from the history of early twentieth century fashion and society to life in wartime France.

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?

Great Lives in Graphics reimagines the lives of extraordinary people in vivid technicolor, presenting 250+ biographical facts in a new and exciting way. 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 colorful, 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 in which they lived.
