By Bruno Munari

New York: The Museum of Modern Art, 1967. Original wraps. Near Fine/Near Fine. Bruno Munari. Another brilliant Bruno Munari design in book form, in this case a clever, wordless artist's book issued in 1967 by MoMA New York. "This is a unique book designed by Bruno Munari especialy for the Museum of Modern Art. It is one of a group of books in which a visual discourse, rather than a text composed of words, carries the thread of the story" (from the rear dustjacket flap). A very sharp copy to boot: Tight and Near Fine to Fine in its stapled, dark wrappers. And in a crisp, Near Fine laminate dustjacket, with just a touch of very light creasing along the front panel's top-edge. Square octavo, the explanatory text on the rear dustjacket flap in both English and Italian. #102 of an unspecified (but undoubtedly very small) number printed. Also includes a sturdy, very sharp example of MoMA's labeled, original shipping carton, which has protected the book well and undoubtedly accounts for its superb condition.
