The Biographical Puzzle is a book with a collection of themed puzzles by Der Tagesspiegel for which I did 15 chapter illustrations.
In the book you can find 150 puzzles, aksing for famous people in history by giving a short biography of their lives. The puzzles themselves are a Best-Of from the series “Wer War‘s?” by Rolf Brockschmidt which is published twice a year in the german newspaper Der Tagesspiegel. The quite difficult puzzles in the book are sorted into 15 cateogories with an illustration for each of these chapters.
The chapters and illustrations from top to bottom: Religions and World-views, Civil Courage, Writing to Glory, Paradise on Earth, Humanities, Careers Abroad, A Touch of Luxury, World War 1, Wanderlust, Street-signs as a Monument, At Home in two Worlds, In the Realm of Culinary Art, Politics, Harmony, Science Year in Berlin.
