Google replaces their original homepage logo with an animated slideshow doodle honoring French author Alexandre Dumas, author of Count of Monte Cristo and author of The Three Musketeers.
August 28, 1844 – 176 years ago – Alexandre Dumas publishes the first volume of the Count of Monte Cristo in the “Journal des Dabats”, and the next seventeen volumes are published over the next year and a half.
He was born in a French colony in what is now Dumas devi de la Pilatari in Haiti, when Alexander took the name Dumas in later life. Dumas wrote his first play at the age of 27 before taking part in the French Revolution of 1830.
Dumas was able to evoke detail and accuracy in his writing that could only tell both from his own life and the story of his father – the first person of color to hold many high positions in the French army, including the General-in-Chief. . During his career, it is said that Alexandre Dumas wrote about one million pages of novels, plays and other writings.
Today’s Google Doodle takes you through the original stories of Count of Monte Cristo, the best stories of betrayal and revenge while celebrating author Alexandre Dumas. The animated slideshow returns to the legacy of newspaper comics using the style of a graphic novel, as the Count of Monte Cristo was originally published in a magazine.
As described in detail in a brief interview with the artist, Google doodler Matt Crickshank, Alexandre Dumas’s writing style and characterization made it very easy to visualize today’s doodle.
The rich and beautiful-edmund story “Monty Christore County” tale settings and characters are so surprisingly thought out. It is a repository of visual ideas.
