Bruno Munari

The circus in the mist


"When the summer sun lights up everything and the sand burns beneath bare feet, all nature is awake and full of lite: trees push forth new leaves, birds take long flights, animals and insects run and jump, and children discover a world of new wonders around them.
But in the winter nature sleeps, and white it lies dreaming, the mist appears. Walking in the mist is like entering into nature'a dream. Now the birds take only short flights so they will not lose their way; traffic lights and road signs disappear and cars and buses must move slowly, yet one has only time to catch a glimpse of them before they vanish again. At night, red, green, and yellow lights color the all enveloping mist, and everything seems unreal. Only indoors can people and animals live as usual".

In The circus in the mist, the reader, adult or child, is completely involved and enters actively into the story through a series of pictures and prompts created by using different types of pierced and perforated paper. A journey through the milky opacity of Milan's fog, an introduction to the lively world of the circus.
