SZEP VERSEK & KORKEP

Szep versek (Nice poems) and Korkep (Panorama) are annual anthology books released since 1963 by one of the largest Hungarian publishing company, Magveto. Szep versek is a collection of poems, while Korkep contains several short novels. The covers are made by different collaborators every year and here I had the honour to design the 2018 edition of the series.
