Summary One of the greatest graphic designers of the twentieth century--called by Picasso "the Leonardo of our time"--Italian artist and designer Bruno Munari (1907-1998) considered the book the best medium to communicate his visual ideas, showcase his art, and convey his creative spirit. Primarily produced in large quantities for the general public, his more-than-sixty publications--from design manuals and manifestos to visionary tactile children's books--displayed all the beauty and technical ingenuity of works of art. Munari's Books, the first English-language monograph to focus on his remarkable achievements in publishing, examines in detail his seventy-year legacy in print, from his pioneering work as a graphic designer and collaborations with major publishers to his experimental visual projects and innovative contributions to the fields of painting, sculpture, design, photography, and teaching.
Note Bibliography of books by Bruno Munari (1907-1998), painter, sculptor, designer and graphic artist, arranged chronologically by title, series, and by cover and illustrations, which formed a personal diary, annotating experiences, events and thoughts to explain his works.
