Mari Takács, Hungary

Mari Takács, Hungary
born in 1971, graduated from the College of Design and Decoration and studied at the Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design Budapest. She spent many years working in advertising before she began illustrating children’s poetry, fairy tales and non-fiction in 2002. Thereby, Mari Takács’ style is as versatile as the texts she chooses: at times her illustrations seem playful and childlike, then like comic-style and graphic. Abstaining from detailed illustration, her abstract oevre opens up for the storyteller and is especially suitable for live performances such as readings for children. She was awarded, amongst others, the IBBY “Children’s Book o
f the Year” 2007 and the Hungarian Best Book Award 2005 and 2008. So far, 27 books have been published mainly by Csimota in Budpest, but also in France and Poland.
