“Travel sculptures started off as small sculptures (some even pocket sized) to carry with you, or so you could take part of your own culture to an anonymous hotel room. Later they were turned into “travel sculptures” five or six metres tall and made of steel. One of these was seen for a few months in Cesenatico, another one in Naples along the seafront. Others are sleeping among huge trees in the Alto Adige region.” – Bruno Munari, A collective exhibition
 
This is how Bruno Munari described his “travel sculptures”, which inspired the famed pop-up book artist David A. Carter for Le sculture da viaggio di Munari.
In Carter’s words: “This book focuses on a very specific genre of Bruno Munari’s work, the traveling sculptures. It appears that Munari was extremely experimental as an artist. I believe that through experimentation with paper and folding he created these traveling sculptures. Most were made with paper, just like the pop-ups created by todays paper-engineers. Some of these sculptures are made with wood, using leather pieces for the hinges and some are made with metal. I hope you enjoy the traveling sculptures of Bruno Munari as much as I do, and don’t forget to take this book on all of your travels.”

It pays homage to Bruno Munari’s creativity and to his innovative approach to the book as a means of communication: a book communicates not only through words, but also through its size, paper and colors.
