Riot Communications x Vintage x Yuval Noah Harari
2 Sep 2020 -
Following on from our success of launching the international phenomenon SAPIENS by Yuval Noah Harari (2014), we are teaming up with publishers Vintage and Yuval Noah Harari once again to launch: SAPIENS – A GRAPHIC HISTORY. In collaboration with comics artists David Vandermeulen (co-writer) and Daniel Casanave (illustrator), this graphic edition is a radical reworking of the original book – which has now sold over 16 million copies and been translated into 60 languages – and will be published in four volumes starting with Volume 1: The Birth of Humankind.
Preena Gadher, MD, Riot Communications said: “Promoting the original book SAPIENS back in 2014 is a personal career highlight, and since then we have had the privilege of working with Vintage and Yuval Harari on every one of his books to date (HOMO DEUS, 2016; 21 LESSONS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY (2018). Harari is one of our greatest global public intellectuals and so it is wonderful to see SAPIENS adapted in this graphic format, aimed at adults and young adults who might not usually pick up a history or science book. I hope we can introduce a whole new audience to Harari and his exhilarating ideas.”
SAPIENS: A GRAPHIC HISTORY is out on 12th November 2020.
