Design as Art
This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
One of the last surviving members of the futurist generation, Bruno Munari's "Design as Art "is an illustrated journey into the artistic possibilities of modern design translated by Patrick Creagh published as part of the "Penguin on Design" series in Penguin Modern Classics. 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 everyday. Lamps, road signs, typography, posters, children's books, advertising, cars, and chairs these are just some of the subjects to which he turns his illuminating gaze. How do we see the world around us? The Penguin on Design series includes the works of creative thinkers whose writings on art, design, and the media have changed our vision forever."
