Károly Reich (1922-88) was a Hungarian illustrator, graphic artist and a poster designer who began working in 1945. In the 1970s he worked on a number of children's books, and yay retro! are delighted to have some framed pictures from a 1974 book for sale in our online vintage shop now. These features bears, owls, foxes and birds in fantastically bright colours.
Riech became well known for his outstanding drawing skills, and it is his detailing and fluidity of line that attracts us to his work. He illustrated more than 500 books in his lifetime! What we love about these pictures is that the originals were done in coloured pencil giving them a soft, folksy feel. You can find the framed pictures we have for sale here, and they are offered to you with combined postage.
