Discovery of the Square by Bruno Munari [1st English, 1965]

Discovery of the Square by Bruno Munari. 1st English edition, George Wittenborn, Inc., New York, 1965. Offset reprint by the Morgan Press, Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y.. 6 x 6, approx. pp. 86 plus with English text. Translation by Desmond O' Grady. Design by Bruno Munari.

Discovery of the Square is a visual case study that spans history, art and design, anthropology and science with all subjects arranged in alphabetical order ... from AGORA (The Plan of the Agora of Ephesus) to WANG HSI-CHIH, (the father of Chinese calligraphy). 

Heavily illustrated throughout with black and white examples, each with small captions including: architectural floor plans, diagrams, artworks, symbols, line drawings, photographs, and more. This compact book has been reprinted numerous times since it’s initial publishing and is a testament to Munari’s genius “... the Leonardo of our time.”—Pablo Picasso 

A very good, easily abused softcover with light soiling to the white covers and a diagonal vertical crease to the back cover. Coated interior pages unmarked. Check Munari’s companion volumes The Discover of the Circle, 1966 and The Triangle, 1976.
