A lány, aki csillagász lett ( The Girl, Who Became an Astronomer) is a picture book about the life of the first Hungarian female astronomer, Júlia Balázs. Her life was quite challenging, as she had to juggle between her profession which required working mostly at night, and her family of four children.
These are some of the spreads I illustrated for her fascinating story written by Edina Kertész, published by Naphegy Kiadó.
