AN (UN)RELIABLE HISTORY OF TATTOOS

Paul Thomas

£14.99
The tattoo is an art form, a practice . . .for some, a ritual. Its history is long and colorful, dating back to the Neolithic, when our ancestors marked their bodies with symbolic lines derived from a carbon paste. Today, those same markings can be made on entering the neon parlors that line our cities. Maybe it’s time to stop taking them so seriously.
Paul Thomas’s work has also appeared in the “Sunday Times,” the “Times,” the “Independent,” the “Daily Telegraph,” “Private Eye,” and “Shares” magazine. He has illustrated three books by Hunter Davies for Random House.

The third in Corinne Maier and Anne Simon’s collection of graphic novels exploring the lives of some of the most influential figures in modern history lands its spotlight upon Albert Einstein, the German-born physicist who developed the theory of relativity.
He is considered the most influential physicist of the twentieth century.
You’ve probably heard of him, but you’ve never seen him like this!
Anne Simon was born in 1980 in France. She studied in the Beaux-Arts in Angouleme, and then in the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, one of the most prestigious art schools in France. In 2004, she received the “New Talent” prize at the Angouleme festival, and she released her first comic book “Persephone in the Underworld” in 2006.
Corinne Maier was born in 1963 in Geneva. As a writer, economist, historian, and psychoanalyst, she has produced around fifteen non-fiction books on subjects like psychoanalysis, society, history, and humor. Her books are bestsellers in her native France and some (such as “Hello Laziness”) have been translated into several languages.
