I tre porcellini
Once upon a time there were three little pigs who lived in a big house in the forest... The classic tale of the three little pigs is now set by Steven Guarnaccia among houses designed by the greatest architects of the XXth century.
Frank Gehry, Philip Johnson and Frank Lloyd Wright are in fact the main protagonists of this contemporary tale with other renowned architects in their houses of scraps, glass, stone and mortar. In these famous buildings the three little pigs live among objects designed by some of the most internationally representative architects and designers. But one day the bad wolf visits them...
As for Riccioli d’oro e i tre orsi, Cenerentola and I vestiti nuovi dell’imperatore, Steven Guarnaccia re-designs a classical tale for children from an architect and designer’s point of view, by realizing mixed-media illustrations with precise strokes and clear and harmonious colours. Also, in the endpapers of the book one can find a useful list of the renowned design objects which appear in the story, in order to find and recognize them while reading the story. ... and they lived happily ever after.
