Le Sculture Da Viaggio Di Munari
“Travel sculptures started off as small sculptures (some even pocket-sized) to carry with you, so you could take part of your own culture to an anonymous hotel room. Later they were turned into ‘travel sculptures’, five or six metres tall and made of steel. One of these was seen for a few months in Cesenatico, another one in Naples. Others are sleeping among huge trees in the Alto Adige region.” This is how Italian designer Bruno Munari (1907–1998) described his “travel sculptures”, which in turn inspired American illustrator and designer David A. Carter for this pop-up book.
