Bruno Munari: A Flower With Love
Edizioni Corraini's Bruno Munari Workshop series focuses on a variety of creative tasks and skills that inspire the active involvement of adults and children alike--flower arranging, in this case. In A Flower with Love, the beloved Italian artist and designer lets us in on the secret: "...what really matters is the love with which a little daisy, a lavender sprig or some moss are chosen, that one there in particular and not that other one." With full-color images of Munari's whimsical and inventive creations in each spread, we learn that flower arranging is not an obscure art but a natural gesture requiring more care and imagination than money. Munari's examples are not to be copied slavishly; they represent examples to aid the reader in uncovering their own natural aesthetic sensibilities.
