One Minute Stories

 On the leaflet of Körönd Könyvesbolt es Galeria
(=book store) it says that
will get a free postcard of Kass Janos
if buying something at ther store
- well, didn't get it automatically,
had to ask for it...
- chose this "Lady In Gold"
= "Hölgy aranyban"

János Kass (December 26, 1927 – March 29, 2010)
was a Hungaria illustrator, printmaker,
graphic designer, postage stamp designer, animated film director and teacher.
.Kass regularly took part in every major national exhibition
at home and abroad.
He had one-man shows in Italy (1963), Australia (1970)
and Switzerland (1976).
He participated in the Venice Biennial (1960),
the Youth Biennial in Paris (1961),
and Biennials in Lugano, Tokyo, Ljubljana,
São Paulo and Buenos Aires,
along with "Intergrafik" exhibitions in Berlin

 Bought Istvan Örkeny's One Minute Stories
in English at Alexandra Bookstore
- wanted to have it in Hungarian too
but they didn't have it,
which was quite surprising
Anyway, found it at Körönd Bookstore:
Valogatott Egyperces Novellak
- good practise of Hungarian!

Körönd Könyvesbolt es Galeria
VI Budapest,
Felsö erdösor utca 16-18

Watched this DVD Running With Scissors
starring Annette Bening, Joseph Fiennes, Alec Baldwin,
Gwyneth Paltrow
- well, didn't really like it
but the end was ok
