After studying Fine Arts in Paris, Florence Magnin started her career designing stage backgrounds for theatre, postcards, posters and covers. She also did illustrations for children's publications by Scandinavia, Hachette and Nathan. In 1984, she published her first comic story in the magazine Métal Hurlant. In the early 1990s, she returned to comics. Cooperating with Rodolphe, she created the fantasy series 'L'Autre Monde', published by Vaisseau d'Argent and later Dargaud. Magnin and Rodolphe also made 'Mary la Noire' for Dargaud between 1995 and 1997. In 1996, Magnin illustrated 'L'Univers d'Ambre', based on the oeuvre of Robert Zelazny for Éditions Denoël. Again for Dargaud, in 2002, she began 'L'Héritage d'Émilie', for which she does both art and script.

Series and books by Florence Magnin in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:
Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over
12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
