This cultural who’s-who illuminates 50 famous figures, from Leonardo Da Vinci to Coco Chanel, through the fascinating trivia of their lives.

An exquisitely illustrated almanac and cultural literacy cheat sheet all in one, this fun and informative collection offers both history buffs and art lovers a treasure trove of strange and fascinating facts about beloved artists, writers, thinkers, and dreamers.
