I Prelibri

Sold Out


The Prelibri, or prebooks, is a series of twelve small books dedicated to young children who have not yet learned how to read or write. These twelve little books come in a range of unusual colours, bindings and materials and are designed to fit into small hands, offering a variety of stimuli and sensations which instil the early impression that books are objects which contain a world of surprises and excitement.

Munari is our Italian godfather number two – the first being Enzo Mari. We’re constantly inspired by Munari’s work; it used to be that if we hit a wall, we’d refer to his books. His view of the role and process of design remains at the forefront of today’s design context. He has a playful and intuitive set of values around design and education – one that has nurtured HATO for over a decade. As students it was always hard to source his projects and books, so we’re so happy to sell them here now.

Bruno Munari was a prolific Italian artist, designer and inventor associated with the Futurist, Modernist and Concrete Art movements – and best known for his experimental children's books, foam toys, futuristic light fittings and cube-shaped ashtrays. The idea of play as an essential component to creativity informs much of his work.
