Foam letter parts

Originally created in 1960 for Danese
This box contains a small series of curved and straight lines in soft plastic, which a child can arrange to create every capital letter of the alphabet. He will learn, for instance, that the « R » is formed by a vertical, a curved and a diagonal line; that the « D » is formed by a vertical and a large curved line, etc. After learning the alphabet the child may enjoy using more elements to make larger letters and a variety of other shapes.
In 1960 Munari made for Danese ABC with imagination, a game in which he merged his attention for the world of children with his researches about multiples. 26 linear and circular elements can in fact make up any letter of the alphabet, or whatever the imagination suggests. These elements are also flexible and modular, so that they can be moved closer to each other or superimposed if you wish. It’s a creative way to approach reading and writing, but also to have fun by mixing up rules and shapes, inventing and re-inventing your own alphabet.
On the occasion of the centenary of his birth, Corraini presents the reprint of this well-known game by Bruno Munari.
