Olivier Tallec

Olivier Tallec

Olivier Tallec is a French children’s book author and illustrator. He graduated from the École Supérieure des Arts Appliqués Duperré in Paris and worked in advertising as a graphic designer before devoting himself to illustration. He has done numerous illustrations for newspapers and magazines and has illustrated over 50 books for children. He’s fascinated by textiles and by all forms of popular culture. An avid traveler, he divides his time between Paris, where he lives, and far-flung adventures.

Thanks to the French Institute for their support in bringing Olivier to Cape Town





Olivier will also be visiting schools while at the festival!
