Introducing a small collection of children's books and objects by Corraini Edizioni, a publishing workshop open to Italian and International artists, illustrators and designers: a sort of space where tailor-made books and projects see the light. Among them, Bruno Munari's works stand out. The eclectic Italian artist and designer with whom Corraini set up a long lasting collaboration created a sort of workshop open to creativity and fantasy. This collaboration brought a special attention to the world of artists' books for children.
