Stephen Biesty is an artist of phenomenal talent with remarkable visual skills. As a child he spent hours drawing castles, knights at battle, and ferocious Vikings, taking inspiration from films such as Spartacus, Ben Hur, and Anthony and Cleopatra, which fueled his already fertile imagination.
In 1980, he attended Brighton Polytechnic where he specialized in historical reconstruction illustration and developed a particular interest in what went on inside castles and other ancient buildings. After graduating from Brighton with a BA in Graphic Design, Stephen earned an MA in Graphic Design at City of Birmingham Polytechnic working further in historical reconstruction.
Stephen became a full-time illustrator in 1985 and has since worked on a variety of information books for adults and children. It took Stephen two and a half years to draw the wonderful illustrations for the best-selling Stephen Biesty's Incredible Cross-Sections, which was published in 1992. That volume was the inspiration for a new range of cross-section books which include Man-of-War (1993), Castle (1994), Incredible Pop-Up Cross-Sections (1995), Incredible Explosions (1996), Incredible Everything (1997), Incredible Body (1998), and DK Amazing Pop-Up 3D Time Scape (1999). Stephen Biesty lives in Somerset, England with his wife and son.
