Il suono delle cose
The Sound of Things
The sound of things was born in the spring of 1955, when a young William Wondriska just before he was drafted into the Armed Services conceived, designed, and printed it in the Department of Design of Yale University, as partial fulfillment of degree requirements.
In this book, the author – in a wonderful combination of drawings, letters, and colors – brings the sound of all kinds of objects visually alive. Children–and their parents–will delight in the imaginative presentation of auditory elements realized by Wondriska. The sound of things appears now in a slightly different format that the artist thinks is even more exciting than the original one–which by now has become a collector’s item.
