From the Publisher. One of the last members of the Futurist generation, born in 1907 in Milan (d. 1998), Bruno Munari was among the most inspirational designers of all time, described by Picasso as the new “Leonardo.” Munari insisted that design be beautiful, functional, and accessible, and this enlightening and highly entertaining book sets out his ideas about visual, graphic and industrial design and the role it plays in the objects we use and encounter everyday, including lamps, road signs, typography, posters, children’s books, advertising, cars, and chairs.
