Plus and Minus is a wonderfully inventive and imaginative visual game created by Italian masters Bruno Munari & Giovanni Belgrano
It consists of 72 cards, with 48 transparent ones that can be superimposed to compose complex images and stimulate a child’s creativity.
By overlapping pictures of trees, you can create a wood. By adding some rain, the sun or the moon, or some birds, a passing dog, or whatever, the overall picture can be continuously changed.
Our favorite artist Bruno Munari will inspire you with endless visual invention and storytelling!
This is a very special gift for little artistic minds.
72 play cards including transparents and die-cut cards
in a cardboard box
each card 6.1 x 6.1 inch
Made in Italy
Bruno Munari (October 24, 1907 in Milan – September 30, 1998 in Milan) was an Italian artist, designer, and inventor who contributed fundamentals to many fields of visual arts (painting, sculpture, film, industrial design, graphic design) in modernism, futurism, and concrete art, and in non visual arts (literature, poetry) with his research on games, didactic method, movement, tactile learning, kinesthetic learning, and creativity.
Bruno Munari joined the ‘Second’ Italian Futurist movement in Italy led by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in the late 1920s. During this period, Munari contributed collages to Italian magazines, some of them highly propagandist, and created sculptural works which would unfold in the coming decades including his useless machines, and his abstract-geometrical works. After World War II Munari disassociated himself with Italian Futurism because of its proto-Fascist connotations.
