This Tiffany Cooper graphic biography tells the story of Karl Lagerfeld's life, complete with intimate details from the iconic fashion designer himself.

This isn't the first joint project between Karl Lagerfeld and Tiffany Cooper. The designer-illustrator duo also recently collaborated to create a capsule collection of garments and accessories.

The new book, called 'Karl's Secrets,' shows Lagerfeld at home with his cat, Choupette, and reveals interesting details that Tiffany Cooper gained access to through her relationship with the intriguing figure: that he sketches with makeup, for example, and that he never cries. It also visits some of the more difficult and vulnerable moments of Lagerfeld's life, particularly his struggle with food and weight in the 80s.

Tiffany Cooper's biography takes an interesting medium and applies it to a fascinating subject to create a whimsical, eccentric look at the private life of a globally known persona.
