i love this little book. i am a big fan of bruno munari; he created so many things that i love, many of them for children...this little book sits near my desk in the studio and i flip through it often. where else can you get a sunny dose of color as well as ikebana tips, complete with instructions for using a half of a potato as a kenzan (flower frog)? i also love the section at the end where he invites the reader on a woodland walk...it isn't until 4 pages later that you realize that the woodland is actually a terrarium of moss and rocks...but the point is clear: bring nature inside and enjoy it.
