“This thing with forks is a game, a sort of mental exercise, the same as the one I play with children”. Thanks to his intelligent and unexpected doodles, Bruno Munari knew how to discover the unusual in the mundane. And so a common object like the fork, through a simple exercise of the imagination, can become a hand. Actually, lots of hands.
This book includes some of Munari’s drawings of his famous forks (“done one at a time and always with the right hand”) inspired by the classic edition published by Muggiani in 1958. — From the publisher
