Even when we recognize genius, it is usually difficult to know what makes a great mind tick. In each of these 56 profiles, Emily Gosling offers a succinct overview of a brilliant individual's career, along with nuggets of knowledge about his or her artistic process. Each illustrated by a surreal collage, here are a pantheon of artists (Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo Da Vinci, Henri Matisse, Georgia O'Keeffe); writers (Franz Kafka, Toni Morrison, Agatha Christie); and musicians (W.A. Mozart, Patti Smith, Bob Dylan, Björk, David Bowie), as well as Albert Einstein, Alfred Hitchcock, Zaha Hadid, Yoko Ono, Werner Herzog, and Coco Chanel.
