Overview

The books in the new workshop series describe different methods of learning, from educational activities to explanatory pamphlets to poetic play. The illuminating, gentle genius of the Italian artist and designer Bruno Munari (1907-1998) offers basic instructions and plenty of stimuli, suggestions and illustrative pictures to get adults and children, teachers and students working together. These three books, the first in the series, are classics from the hand of a magician. For drawing a tree, Munari suggests: "When drawing a tree, always remember that every branch is more slender than the one that came before. Also note that the trunk splits into two branches, then those branches split in two, then those in two, and so on, and so on, until you have a full tree, be it straight, squiggly, curved up, curved down, or bent sideways by the wind."
