I'm trying to keep in stock a variety of picture books (or picture-book-like objects) by Bruno Munari, though they are often between printings.


Alfonso, the thoroughly likeable green magician, disappears and reappears in trunks and boxes. At the end he finally manages to play his violin in peace.

Together with other eight albums, The Green Conjurer 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).
