János Kass I

János Kass (1927-2010) was a sculptor, graphic designer and printer, who also worked in film and animation. He illustrated over 400 books and was honoured with many awards in his life time including Hungary's highest award, the Kossuth prize
János Kass's style, as shown here, is a mixture of fine black lines and broader colour lines there is no mixing of colour, which is kept bold and singular. 
This is not János Kass's only style of work, but it is very distinctive and instantly recognisable as well as being bright, fun and happy.
