    Plus and Minus

    , ,
    In 1968 Munari published The circus in the mist, in which he created fascinating images by using his own way the "seethrough" effect. The bright colours of the circus are preceded and followed by the veiled dullness of Milan’s fog: in this vague environment the blurred outlines of the figures become clear by leafing through the book. Two years later, in 1970, Munari dealt again with the theme of transparency by conceiving with Giovanni Belgrano Plus and Minus. Not a book but a game, composed by several images on transparent backgrounds, which can be superimposed and mixed at one’s pleasure by adding or removing them. In these square cards the colour is perfectly balanced with the drawing, and together they tell stories. Stories which are bonded together by the imagination of the players, who can create countless combinations using the suggestions at their disposal, without predetermined rules.

    MC1 Architecture Box

    , ,
    Originally produced in 1945, the MC 1 Architecture Box - New Edition contains a series of “bricks” of different shapes. Put together differently, you can make any number of buildings, from houses to churches, ancient castles to modern garages, hotels, skyscrapers, factories, towers, aqueducts, temples, stations, hangars, pile dwellings, houses with porticoes, balconies, terraces, and so on. The attached booklet contains over sixty examples which can be multiplied by the imagination of whoever is playing with them, just some of the infinite constructions that can be build. This new edition features “bricks” made of unhewn beechwood.

    Eight Sequences to Put in Order

    , ,
    Designed in 1976 by Bruno Munari and Giovanni Belgrano, the game contains 52 cards that form eight sequences of images to be logically ordered: the sequences are made up of 3 to 10 cards, in an increasing order of difficulty. A little bird coming out of a cage, a house under construction, a plant that grows leaves and blooms: each card, corresponding to a passage in succession, contains different pieces of information which serve as clues to be interpreted, from the colour of the apple that ripens to the position of the sun in the sky. Each image leads to the reconstruction of the sequence and its meaning, training the child’s ability to form logical bonds. Starting from the fundamental idea of the game − the search for the right card to carry the series forward − you can invent many ways of using the cards, even in groups.

    Transformations

    , ,
    Designed by Bruno Munari and Giovanni Belgrano in 1975, Transformations is composed of 60 cards to be placed horizontally or vertically to create sequences of always new and unique images. Animals seen from near and far, leaves and roots of trees, flowers, acorns can be combined in many different ways, assembling and disassembling them. One card after another, you can take endless directions, for example climbing from an underground den to the sky in a journey full of surprises. Through the creation of visual stories in continuous transformation, the game develops both linguistic activity and the organization of space.

    Look Into My Eyes

    , ,
    The book originated in 1969 as a gift (the first edition of 250 copies was never for sale). The theme of “faces”, so dear to Munari, here turns almost into a game played with the eyes and the different ways of seeing things: “…mix up drawings, change the colour of the eyes, help us to see things through other people’s eyes…”. Bruno Munari suggests how to use the 25 loose coloured pages, all with eye holes.

    Images of Reality

    , ,
    Designed by Bruno Munari and Giovanni Belgrano, Images of reality contains 40 cards with photographs which feature a number of subjects seen from various points of view and in several ways. A shoe, a hand, a fish or a lightbulb can look very different if we observe them from different perspectives, or if we see them as changing objects, where the name is only one of the many possible representations. Comparing realistic colour photography to black and white photography, the photographic negative and the last step of the written word (in six languages: Italian, English, French, German, Spanish and Japanese), the game stimulates the learning of the differences between real objects and their representations.
