Gianni Rodari and Bruno Munari have always paid great attention to the world of children, sharing the purpose of setting images and words free, and making us discover the pleasure of invention, imagination and creativity. Bringing together seemingly distant or even opposite elements, and coming up with unexpected solutions and combinations, they gave new meanings to letters and signs. The book features a large selection of Munari’s drawings, accompanied by quotes from Rodari’s books, a comment by Antonio Faeti and unpublished essays by Riccardo Falcinelli and Marco Belpoliti, which set Munari’s drawings in the wider context of the history of children’s books illustration, examining the first reception and the qualities of Munari’s “scribbles”.
