Gigi’s looking for his cap. Where can it be? Let’s help him find it by opening closet doors, lifting lids and looking around. A book to rummage through, like an attic or a messy bedroom, with direct and captivating pictures drawn over half a century ago. Ah! Gigi finds his cap in the end!

Together with other eight albums, Gigi Has Lost His Cap is part of the historic 1945 series created by Munari. He devised these lively books/"albums" for children using large pictures, pages and inserts of different sizes, and varying holes to arouse the curiosity of the observer and let the reader literally hang at each page.

Bruno Munari (1907–1998) was an Italian artist and designer who contributed in many fields of both visual (paint, sculpture, film, industrial design, graphics) and non-visual arts (literature, poetry).
