Les Zinzins de l'Histoire

Illustrateur(s)
L’histoire ne serait pas celle que nous connaissons aujourd’hui sans tous ces zinzins pour la rendre encore plus fascinante, sombre et mystérieuse.
De l’Antiquité jusqu’au XXe siècle, les 47 personnages de ce livre ont dévoilé leur grain de folie, leurs projets fantasques ou leur cruelle démence à leurs contemporains, et assouvissent aujourd’hui notre curiosité en nous révélant leurs plus sinistres bizarreries.
Entre l’inexplicable fugue d’Agatha Christie, les bains de sang de la cruelle et belle Élisabeth Bàthory et l’idée farfelue de Vincenzo Peruggia de revendre la Joconde, aventurez-vous dans cette traversée des siècles en compagnie de tous ces hommes et ces femmes aussi déterminés et inquiétants qu’étranges et sanguinaires.

Nutcases Through History

In this portrait gallery of historic figures, crazy men and women, who are all experts in 'nutcase-ology', are gathered together in a book that is both fun and enriching!

  Gavin's Clemente-Ruiz is a 'curious author of curiosities' and researcher-writer for the French guide books Guide du Routard. Wassim Boutaleb J. is a comics author and illustrator. He has worked for Nike and The Parisianer and has collaborated with E/P/A for the Universal Declaration of the Women Rights.

Nutcases Through History paints a portrait of the people throughout history and around the world who have been completely nuts, wacky, bloodthirsty, odd or outright insane. We encounter familiar faces, like the Papin sisters, Nero, Gengis Khan and Agatha Christie, but also other, lesser-known figures, each one nuttier than the next. They have all shaped or changed the world, created or surprised, dreamed or hated, but in what a way. Nevertheless, take care, there are different types of nutcases! The author amuses himself by classifying them, both men and women, into different groups: harmless loonies, eccentric figures, zany characters, quirky and gentle dreamers, raging or bloodthirsty madmen and women, etc.
