Drawing a tree is one of the books from the Munari Workshop series that describes different working techniques, from educational to explanatory pamphlets and “poetic” play... with explanations and maps to get adults and children, teachers and students working together.
"Perfection, says an old proverb, is beautiful but stupid: you have to understand it but break it. Now that you know how to draw a tree, as I think you do, there's no need to slavishly follow what I've shown you. Once you know the rule, you can draw the tree of your choice, completely different from the ones you've seen in this book. You can draw them with a pencil, a pen, a felt-tip market a paintbrush, crayons, chalk, a piece of brick, charcoal, your fingers. powders, chocolate, a shaving brush or a broom. You can make them out of paper, stiff card, corrugated board, packing paper, wire mesh, plastic, non-plastic, papier-mâché, wire, brass, aluminium, string, spaghetti, cloth, whatever you want. And then, above all, teach others how to do it to". — Bruno Munari
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.
