    The Sound of Things
    By William Wondriska / Published by Corraini Edizioni
    44 pages

    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.

    Bird Beak Book
    By Oscar Bolton Green /Published by Corraini Edizioni
    24 pages

    Oscar Bolton Green’s clear-cut line drawings and brilliant colours explain the many different variations with the same simplicity as the accompanying text.
    His immediate, essential style, with its patches of colour and clarity of line, shows how tiny hummingbirds stretch into the flowers to draw out the nectar and how graceful flamingo dips its spoon-shaped beak beneath the surface of the water.
