From artists to aviators and scientists to revolutionaries, Little Guides to Great Lives is a brand new series of small-format guides introducing children to the most inspirational figures from history in a fun, accessible way.
It was a pleasure to work with so many incredible illlustrators on these titles – Anke Weckmann, Marianna Madriz, Hannah Warren, Paola Escobar and Katja Spitzer. Each book is illustrated using a different three Pantone colours, to stunning effect.
The Little Guides To Great Lives have been translated into more than 15 languages to date.
In 2019, I ran Little Guides events at the Paris Book Fair, Wimpole History Festival and Heffers, Cambridge, often teaming up with Marianna Madriz (illustrator of Frida Kahlo and Stephen Hawking). If you would like us to run an inspiring, hands-on event at your festival or school please get in touch!
