Janos Kass, Part 1
I discovered the Hungarian artist Janos Kass on Kristina Klarin's blog and since then, have been searching for some of his books to buy. Janos Kass(1927-2010) was a graphic designer, artist, animated film director, printmaker, and book designer. I followed Kristina's links and saw several books on this Japanese website but with the yen-dollar exchange rate, they were a bit expensive for me. Another link led me to this Hungarian website and I ended up purchasing several children's books. The website is both in English and Hungarian with prices in Hungarian forints. You can pre-order out-of-stock books and they will answer emails in English. The following is one of the books I purchased. I have absolutely no idea what it's about but the illustrations are so cheerful.
