WORKING BIOGRAPHIES series will give readers brief, beautifully designed, introductions to a specific contemporary field and through the career of one outstanding practitioner. Each book will examine an innovator in a specific industry through the lens of his or her work.
The idea for the WORKING BIOGRAPHIES series emerged from the recognition of the enormous array of work prospects that present themselves to those who are “undecided” and are thinking of establishing a career, changing his/her profession or learning about a trade or specific profession exploring the life of a leader. These books will look at personalities who have found their way through the minefield of possibilities. Neither handbooks, nor exhaustive biographies, the WORKING BIOGRAPHIES will follow the path each of the subjects took – and what they believe to be the future of their fields.
The WORKING BIOGRAPHIES will be short, concise, small and finely produced learning tools, both useful and aesthetically pleasing.
