Illustrations made for the fable in verse “Iciri-piciri”, written by the Hungarian novelist Zsigmond Móricz, who was a major figure in the 20th century Hungarian realist literature. Since the fable is quite well-known and popular in Hungary, it has been published several times and formats since its birth and thus became a “classic”.
My intent was to create a visual support for this fable differing from the well-known and traditional visual depictions of it, with the pedagogical aim to inspire and encourage creative thinking “outside of the box”. The “actors” of this visual scene were everyday objects: a salt shaker, buttons, earphones, catalogues, books, rubber bands, fruits and vegetables and so on.
The leporello binding reflects upon the classic binding technique with which this story is usually published, suggesting that the proposed visual language could be adapted for children under 7 years.
