Abstract (English)

"As book that deals with Munari’s books, this volume aims to put in chronological order his contributions and relationships with the publishing industry, from the very first experiences as a graphic designer to the cooperation with the big national publishing firms, going through his extraordinary innovative projects and his illegible books. Much more than a mere catalogue or bibliography, this book includes a rich introduction dedicated to the different possible courses in Munari’s multi-faceted production, that helps to consider it side by side with his contemporary works in the fields of painting, sculpture, design, photography and didactics, crossing their different poetics" -- Publisher's web site.
