Bruno Munari’s Zoo


One legendary Italian artist’s take on a visit to the zoo.

Bruno Munari, the Italian designer and artist who wrote so eloquently about how to draw and speak Italian, design as art, flowers, and the sun, also made graphically stunning books for children. Using bright, high contrast colors paired with wry and witty verses, he walks the young reader through his menagerie, pondering animals’ unique peculiarities: from flamingos’ knobby knees to giraffes’ long necks.
