|First published in Italy in 1956, Bruno Munari's In the Darkness of the Night tells the tale of an interconnected, intimate yet expansive journey across three settings---in the darkness, through a meadow, and into a mysterious cave---through a spellbinding combination of paper stocks, transparencies, cutouts, and simple but lively characters. This timeless artist's book, available in a new English edition, is a must-have for Munari fans, designers, bibliophiles, and lovers of exceptional book design.|
Bruno Munari (1907--1998) was one of the most groundbreaking and influential designers of the twentieth century. His seventy-year career stretched across the fields of graphic, book, and industrial design; painting, sculpture, film, and photography; literature, poetry, and more, prompting Picasso to call him "the Leonardo of our time."
Editorial ReviewsARTnews :
"...A transporting artist's book by the great Bruno Munari. The tome was first published in 1956 and is coming out again in a new facsimile edition from Princeton Architectural Press, which took care to reproduce the book with all its quirks: holes in certain pages, translucent sheets between, little flaps that open and close."
