Overview

The gentle genius of Bruno Munari (1907–98) offers basic instructions and plenty of stimuli, suggestions and illustrative pictures to get adults and children working together. In this volume Munari shows us how to make imaginative use of all kinds of vegetables to make fun stamps from: "Never mind potatoes. Using a radicchio stalk as a stamp (all it takes is a knife for cutting and an ink pad for coloring), one can discover the flowers in the vegetable garden. And then there are irises, peppers, cabbages, brussels sprouts, tomatoes (only very firm ones are recommended), lettuces, and so on."
