Aurum Press has acquired an illustrated biography of Roger Federer by tennis journalist Mark Hodgkinson.
World rights in Fedegraphica were acquired from David Luxton at DLA.
Lucy Warburton, Aurum Press commissioning editor, said: “Everyone at Aurum Press is incredibly excited to be publishing such an innovative biography of one of the giants of the game – this will be the fullest most satisfying exploration of his phenomenal talent yet published.”
Fedegraphica will use infographics and Hodgkinson’s authority and contacts to explore Federer’s talent and athleticism.
Hodgkinson said: "I'm thrilled to be working with Aurum on a visual biography of Roger Federer. With the beautifully-designed infographics and the brilliant photography, as well as the words, Fedegraphica will be a new, innovative take on the greatest player of all time."
Aurum will publish Fedegraphica in June 2016
