bruno munari: roses in the salad

artwork by Bruno Munari

The books in the new workshop series describe different methods of learning, from educational activities to explanatory pamphlets to poetic play. The illuminating, gentle genius of the Italian artist and designer Bruno Munari (1907-1998) offers basic instructions and plenty of stimuli, suggestions and illustrative pictures to get adults and children, teachers and students working together.

These three books are classics from the hand of a magician.

In this volume, Munari shows us how to make imaginative artistic use of all kinds of vegetables to make fun stamps from: “Never mind potatoes. Using a radicchio stalk as a stamp (all it takes is a knife for cutting and an ink pad for coloring), one can discover the flowers in the vegetable garden. And then there are irises, peppers, cabbages, brussels sprouts, tomatoes (only very firm ones are recommended), lettuces, and so on.”
