Einstein

Corinne Maier | Illustrated by Anne Simon | Translated by Etienne Gilfillan and Arran Brown | Nobrow Press | June 14, 2016

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 Angoulême, and then in the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, one of the most prestigious art schools in France. In 2004, she received the "New Talent" prize at the Angoulême 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.

 

"In a deft translation, Maier’s sharp, clever dialogue gives this portrayal a rapid pace, matched by Simon’s energetic and spirited art."--Publisher's Weekly
