FIDE-David LIada

I used to say that #TheThinkers was the most beautiful chess book ever devoted to chess - at least when it comes to the esthetics.
But after I saw Chessinart's book, I don't think I can claim that anymore. This book is one of a kind.

Some of his latest projects are Red Blue Dimension exhibition, and drawing camps and lectures for handicapped people. This unique book, a collection of paintings where chess is the main theme, is a brilliant example of connection between the game of kings, art and history. He was inspired by the symbolism of chess and evolution of art itself. After many long years of studying and planning he finally found a way to bring the book to reality.
