Bruno Munari - Roses In The Salad
"Using the cut stem of a lettuce leaf as a stamp, Bernardino discovers that there are roses in the lettuce. Have you ever seen them? In this text Bruno Munari plays with vegetables, cutting them in half and covering them in colour: this is how roses can come from salads, trees from cabbages and flowers from tomatoes.
Roses in the salad is part of the Workshop series, which brings together texts by Bruno Munari that describes different working techniques, from educational to explanatory pamphlets and “poetic” play... With basic explanations and plenty of stimuli, suggestions, and maps to get adults and children, teachers and students working together."
Bruno Munari (1907-1998) was an Italian artist, designer and inventor. "Since his very first experiences in the 30s among the artists of the Second Futurism, he always dedicated his creative activity to every form of “experimentation”, with a particular attention to the world of children and their games and toys. Never separating content from form and materials, what he designed were at once books, book-objects and games that would make us think."
